Project 2025: The Ultraconservative Policy Agenda for America

Nine years in the making, Project 2025 is a long-term strategic plan, the effort of a “broad coalition of conservative organizations that have come together to ensure a successful administration begins in January 2025.” The goal of Project 2025 is to secure Republican majorities in the U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate, and the presidency by 2025.

According to its authors, “the goal of the 2025 Presidential Transition Project […] build on four pillars that will, collectively, pave the way for an effective conservative administration: a policy agenda, personnel, training, and a 180-day playbook.”

They say the plan focuses on several key areas, including:

  • Strengthening the Republican brand and message
  • Increasing voter registration and turnout
  • Improving fundraising and campaign operations
  • Recruiting and training candidates
  • Developing a strong ground game

Project 2025 has been criticized by some Republicans and Democrats, who argue that it is too ambitious and divisive, and that it ignores the importance of state and local races. However, The Heritage Foundation has defended the plan, saying that it is necessary to address the challenges facing the Republican Party and the country.

According to news reports, the ultraconservative group has spent more than a year recruiting people to implement Project 2025 within a Trump administration if he’s elected president again. 

Protests led by activists and civil rights groups against Project 2025 say the initiative threatens our democracy and marginalizes communities, especially BIPOC. Demonstrations aim to raise awareness and mobilize opposition to prevent its implementation.

Tamani Mwandani, founder of 3 Levels Edutainment, is advocating awareness and action against the alarming implications of Project 2025,“ In an interview with The Miami Times, he said, “Not since the presidency of Ronald Reagan and his ‘trickle-down economics,’ ‘welfare queens,’ the flooding of Black communities with crack cocaine, which was extremely detrimental and harmful to the forward progress of Black people, have Black, brown and grassroots communities faced a greater threat than that of Project 2025.” Mwandani’s says his organization is hosting a multi-weekend community gathering (June 9 and June 23) to break down Project 2025 and its most dangerous goals.

The success of Project 2025 remains to be seen, especially following the unprecedented conviction of presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Donald J. Trump. Nevertheless, it is clear the Republican Party is committed to winning elections and changing our democracy for their will in the years to come.
