The Heritage Foundation is undertaking a new effort to spread the conservative word through grassroots organizing with its new Action for America.
I know that Heritage has some 600,000 members world wide these days and it is good to see them trying to take the next step toward the promulgation of conservatism.
From the website:
For nearly four decades, The Heritage Foundation has provided conservative leadership for America. What began as a visionary startup policy shop has blossomed into the most influential think tank in the nation. Along the way, Heritage adapted to market pressures to maintain its position as the world’s most cutting-edge and influential research institution.
And now, Heritage Action for America will answer the growing demand to play a more active and effective role in national policy debates. We will ensure members of Congress hear directly from their constituents, including over 630,000 members of The Heritage Foundation and millions of others around the country who believe in our principles and share our vision of America’s future.
Heritage Action for America will allow unprecedented coordination and communication with concerned citizens who want to be part of the national dialogue. Our country stands at a precipice. The size and scope of the federal government is growing at unprecedented rates. The American people are increasingly aware of this and looking for more opportunities to make their voices heard and impact the decisions of their elected representatives. Heritage Action for America will speak directly to the American people in order to break through the establishment in Washington.
