The Middle Resolution (TMR) was formed in 2009 by several businessmen in Mechanicsville, VA out of concern for the direction of our country and Virginia.
In 2012, TMR formed a grassroots coalition bringing awareness to the importance of requiring photo identification to vote, which was later signed into law. In March of 2020, they hosted the first Virginia Election Integrity Summit which spawned the Virginia Fair Elections(VFE) coalition. The VFE focuses on training people to closely monitor elections in Virginia localities.
In 2015, realizing the Virginia public education system was failing thousands of children, TMR decided to enter the education space. They began educating the public on the benefits of offering more options in education and how education freedom further advances parental rights.
In 2021, recognizing the parental rights movement was gaining momentum, they formed a coalition called the Virginia Education Opportunity Alliance (VEOA). This project is focused on creating the largest coalition ever assembled in Virginia to advance education freedom and promote parental rights. Presently, the coalition consists of over 600 organizations and individuals who have taken an active part in this coalition.
