We Are Family (Slovak: Sme Rodina), previously the Party of Citizens of Slovakia, is a right-wing populist political party in Slovakia led by Boris Kollár known for its populism and opposition to mass immigration.


The party was founded on 10 November 2015 by businessman Boris Kollár by renaming and repurposing the existing minor party, Our Land (Ná? Kraj).[15] The party took 6.6% of the vote in the 2016 parliamentary election, winning 11 seats in the National Council.[16][17] In February 2019, the party joined the Identity and Democracy Party.
