Alvin B. Jackson, Jr.
Alvin Jackson spent 18 years of his career working in Washington, D.C. helping organizations achieve their objectives in our nation’s capital whether it was among the executive or legislative branch. This notion of all problems being solved in Washington, DC is contrary to the vision our Father Fathers set for this great nation through the US Constitution.
Mr. Jackson’s experience in Washington, DC prompted him to seek a better solution to our nation’s problems, which led him to the Thomas Jefferson Center for Constitutional Restoration. His time serving in the Navy and Washington, DC has created within him a deep love for this country and the freedoms afforded to us all, as citizens. Unfortunately, those freedoms are being eroded every day and what kind of nation we leave our children is in question.
Mr. Jackson’s efforts through the Thomas Jefferson Center will hopefully make a difference among our current leaders, of which he has constant contact. Additionally, his strong desire to teach our young people about the greatness of this nation and inspire them regarding their role in preserving our freedoms is paramount.
