The Be The People Foundation
Educating the American people about conservative values and principles. Encouraging them to acknowledge and re-embrace our nation’s Judeo-Christian heritage and its impact on our constitution and culture.
We are embroiled in a battle for the future of our children and grandchildren. As concerned Americans, we must embrace opportunities to stand for constitutional government and against anything that weakens our nation and its people. The Be The People Foundation is dedicated to leading the charge. We have the following objectives:
- To reach a broader public with clear explanations about how conservative values and principles apply to the economic, social, political and cultural issues of our day.
- To identify important social and political problems and advance creative solutions to problems like rising crime, illegal immigration, failing schools, skyrocketing health costs, welfare dependence, and racial animosity.
- To dispel myths and stereotypes about race, class, and gender that shut down debate and discourage individuals from setting and attaining higher goals.
- To reach a broad and diverse audience using a variety of media outlets: blogs, television, talk radio, podcasts, print, and the internet.
