We Are Resolute

There are a few, rare times in life where the path is suddenly illuminated and you feel compelled to action by something beyond yourself. The Resolute Group was born at one of those times.  

I (George Khalaf) lived for years in the world of politics and data, working first in grassroots politics and consulting and then forming a political survey research firm, Data Orbital, in 2014. The firm quickly built a reputation for trustworthy survey and data work.  I was born in Lebanon and my family immigrated to the United States in the 1990’s to start a new life. I witnessed first-hand my parents’ sacrifices for faith and country and learned early to put my Christian faith in action. (Read more of George's story here)

We had been feeling continually called to lean into the big issues, issues that touched on the core tenets of our faith and stood to affect the well-being of our families and communities for generations.

I (Joanna Duka) have a background in marketing and non-profits and was fascinated by politics from a young age. Driven by my Christian faith, I immersed myself in conservative values issues over the years and always had a sense I would someday work on them in the political context. At the beginning of 2018, I began working for George and his survey research firm.

We had been feeling continually called to lean into the big issues, issues that touched on the core tenets of our faith and stood to affect the well-being of our families and communities for generations. Many of our colleagues in political work were avoiding these issues, believing that rejecting the culture of contempt meant weakening their positions. Through our survey research and data firm, we found ourselves working on issues like life, religious freedom, and free enterprise with dedicated people like you on the front lines.  We saw their need for greater political influence.  We were also feeling called to a higher level of faith-driven action.

It began to dawn on us that we needed a firm with the capacity to fully invest in advancing free enterprise and conservative values.  And with that, we founded The Resolute Group.

With our political and data background and ability to speak the language of these issues, we feel we can offer value through partnership with those of you doing the work on the ground.  We also intend to provide a path for fellow conservatives who reject the culture of contempt and thoughtfully lean into these issues. 

Our mission is simple: To change public opinion and public policy through message and political consulting in order to advance free enterprise and conservative values.

We think of The Resolute Group as a living, breathing entity with goals, beliefs, character, and personality. We took great care in thinking through every aspect of what we wanted to be.  

Our core beliefs are the dignity and worth of every human, the value of marriage and faith to people, families, and communities, the freedom of all people to believe and speak, and the equal opportunity to achieve success through meaningful work.  The client partnerships we pursue will be carefully chosen to advance these core beliefs.

As partners, we celebrate our clients, putting ourselves in their shoes and always asking:  ‘What does this organization need?’ and ‘What does this movement need?’. These questions drive our work and direct the content of this publication, The Resolute Voice.

We want to be worthy partners who are bold but humble, eager but deliberate, visionary but pragmatic.  We will be bridge builders while standing firm on principle and leaning into the fight with grace, respect, and an eye to the future. Through expanding the influence of our clients, our vision is to win more victories for free enterprise and conservative values and build communities, states and a country where people and their families are strengthened and those on the margins of society are lifted up.
