The President’s Message

The Heritage Foundation is fighting for America.

More about Kevin Roberts


The radical left and the rising tide of socialism pose a dire threat to America’s future. Now more than ever, the people of this nation need a champion fighting the left’s agenda.

Every day, The Heritage Foundation fights for America—for individual liberty, limited government, free enterprise, traditional American values, and a strong national defense to protect at all. Our world-renowned experts develop conservative solutions to America’s biggest issues—from creating more jobs, improving the economy, and building stronger families to securing our borders, making health care more affordable, and so much more.

But unlike so many other organizations in Washington, D.C., our focus isn’t on putting more power into the hands of government, it’s on returning power to the people. Our job is about working on behalf of the American people, not on behalf of any special interest or political party.

But we can’t do it alone. It's only through our Heritage members that we have the ability to engage on all these fronts and continue to fight for America. That’s why we invite you to stand with us—because there’s too much at stake to stand on the sidelines.

Washington Post, WMAL Interview Kevin Roberts on Future of Heritage, Conservatism 
The current environment is toxic. It is an environment that dissuades a plurality, if not a majority, of Americans from wanting to get involved—including even just voting on their own volition. And I think the solution to that is for institutions like Heritage—and hopefully there would be some on the left, and some in the center—to decide that being snarky on Twitter is far less important than cultivating an American’s pride in national conversations about policy.
