New ACORN front group discovered: Home Defenders League

Home Defenders League is a new ACORN front group formed around the time of the collapse of the lead entity in the ACORN network, ACORN Inc., in November 2010.

Many new groups have been founded by ACORN operatives. The typical new ACORN group will have the same employees as the old ACORN group. Often the new ACORN group will use the same office address that was used by the ACORN affiliate or state chapter it replaced. The new Saul Alinsky-inspired groups all have the same radical left-wing political objectives.

Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE) is also a new ACORN offshoot created by longtime California ACORN leader Amy Schur. ACCE created Home Defenders League as a project. As of July 1, 2012, it was unclear if Home Defenders League has been formally incorporated or is a business name adopted by ACCE.

The Internet domain name,, as this document shows, was registered by longtime California ACORN operative David Lagstein, now an ACCE employee.
