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.

Woke Educators, Ukraine Aid, & Future of Conservatism
Heritage Foundation President Kevin Roberts published two major op-eds and joined high-profile broadcast shows in the last week to talk about a host of pressing policy issues, including the threat woke educators pose to the future of American schools and to our families, the flawed Ukraine supplemental rushed through Congress last week, and the future of the conservative movement. Read the news release.

No More Congressional Fire Drills
Helping Ukraine defend itself against Russian aggression is clearly in the national interest of the U.S. So was opposing the flawed Ukraine aid package Congress passed last week. For saying so, the Heritage Foundation was accused by some on the right of abandoning conservative principles or embracing populist isolationism. Neither charge is true. But in one sense, both are welcome. Read the commentary.

The Future of Conservatism: Community, the Common Good, and State Power
We who describe ourselves as conservatives have our work cut out for us. This is not true merely because of the policies of the current presidential administration, or the increasingly radical stances of the modern American Left, or because of the state of American culture. What presents the greatest challenge to conservatives is, well . . . conservatives. Read the commentary.

On Title 42 Ruling: ‘The Fight to Secure Our Borders Still Must Be Fought’
Title 42 has been absolutely critical in helping reduce the spread of COVID-19 and protecting our communities from tens of thousands of illegal aliens who we know are carrying COVID. Read the statement.
