About Us

The American Principles Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to defending our founding principles. APP was created to help every citizen who truly wishes to be part of what our founding fathers called this great “experiment in ordered liberty” to be an informed citizen and thus someone empowered to make a difference.

Are we conservatives? You bet we are, if by a “conservative” one means a believer in the rule of law, democracy, and limited government with respect for civil liberties, private property, the free market, equality of opportunity, the sanctity of human life, the protection of marriage and the family, and the defense of our nation’s sovereignty and security. For us, these convictions are not platitudes. We are convinced that the renewal of our nation and the flourishing of our people vitally depend on making these historic ideals and commitments once again operative in the laws and policies by which we govern ourselves.

Our ancestors came from all over the globe. We practice many different religions. But we are united as Americans in our commitment to the wisdom and goodness of the principles upon which the United States of America was founded and in our willingness to act on these principles and defend them in the public square. We believe that the way forward, economically, politically, and morally, is to rededicate ourselves to those timeless self-evident truths.
