Meet our Volunteer Leaders
Get to know the people behind the movement!
The leadership of the American Solidarity Party is made up of dedicated volunteers. Men and women who, like many, were searching for a better political party. Hopefully you will join us in building a strong foundation for our party, that will help us to elect Solidarity Party candidates as a new kind of leader and redirect the conversation about public policy towards the common good. You can contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, and your inquiry will be routed to the best member of our leadership team.

He has coached speech team, math team, tennis, golf, soccer and basketball. He serves his community through the Knights of Columbus and other local organizations. He is a published novelist, lead singer for a band, member of a competitive softball team, but his passion is in building community and bringing people together.
Patrick joined the American Solidarity Party in 2016, looking for a pro-life movement with a deep-rooted conception of the common good. He has been involved in the New Jersey chapter of the ASP since that time, including Monica Sohler’s 2017 campaign for State Assembly. He takes a special interest in foreign policy, seeking to promote a more responsible, realistic, and restrained approach to America’s global role.
I have been involved in political activism since my college years, when I discovered the Catholic peace and justice movement and the Catholic Worker movement. As the president of the Penn State chapter of Pax Christi I organized demonstrations against the death penalty and war, and ran educational campaigns to introduce fellow students to Catholic social teaching. I joined the American Solidarity Party in 2016, overjoyed to find a real political party fully compatible with Catholic social teaching that is pro-life for the whole life. I was elected chair of the Pennsylvania chapter of the party in October 2107 and joined the national committee in June 2018.

Christopher is a mariner working mostly in the Gulf of Mexico. At present, he is working on getting his captains license. His work allows him much time for reading and studying, and he has used this time to learn Spanish and delve deeper into philosophy, history, theology and Catholic social doctrine.
He has a wonderful wife, Maria Eugenia, with whom he has two daughters, Regina Guadalupe (22 months), and Mercedes Angelica (9 months), with a third baby due in October. He also has a daughter, Gwendolyn, who will be 22 years old in September. Christopher and his family live in Louisiana where his work is based out of.
He has been very interested in politics since his early 20s, and was introduced to it by strong Catholic Republicans while he was a religious brother with the Knights of the Holy Eucharist. From that time, he often volunteered and donated to campaigns, and eventually worked on the Romney presidential campaign as county organizer in Belmont County, Ohio. His strong pro-life, pro-justice, and just war convictions forced him to leave the Republican party, where he found a home here, in the American Solidarity Party.
Eric draws much of his political identity from his personal experiences with discrimination as a bi-racial individual and in witnessing poverty both in the United States and abroad. He joined the American Solidarity Party in the hopes of working with a likeminded community who wants to end many of the injustices that afflict American Society.
Monica Tully Sohler
Monica registered as a Democrat when she first was able to vote in 1978, but in the 1990s switched her registration to Republican primarily due to the abortion issue. However, she was never completely comfortable in either party, and in the 2016 election found herself unable to support either major party candidate. It was then she discovered the American Solidarity Party, and voted Solidarity in 2016.
Monica and Paul primarily home schooled their five children, who were all active in 4H raising livestock. Monica was a 4H leader. She is a CCD teacher in her parish community. She feels the platform of the Solidarity party is unique and wonderful, offering a consistent life view neither major party offers. She hopes to see the party run more candidates and grow as a force in American Politics.
