530 South State Street
Ann Arbor, Michigan

The future of liberty depends on reclaiming America’s first principles. What are those principles, and what do they mean for today? The First Principles Initiative is one of the 10 Transformational Initiatives making up The Heritage Foundation’s Leadership for America campaign. The publications and programs of this Initiative seek to provide a much-needed education for students, policymakers, and citizens about the ideas of liberty and constitutional self-government, with the objective of reorienting our politics and public policy to the principles of the American Founding.

Director of Acton Media and Research Fellow, Jay W. Richards, will speak on the topic of Conservative Answers to Environmental Questions at 2:15PM

    If possible could Acton tape the talk. Thank You

  • Carlos Navarro

    How much did the patrons of Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity pay Heritage to have their photos included in its 2009 calendar, together with an image of Abraham Lincoln no less? How could a prestigious organization like Heritage sell out to like that? Government is broken; Wall Street is broken; the Big Three auto industry, public education is, academe, the news media, TV entertainment, talk show radio are all broken, and now it appears that conservative think tanks are broken as well.

  • Sounds to me like something you should take up with the Heritage Foundation.
