Are You Interested in Promoting American Values?

             Many Americans are concerned the values they see exhibited in the United States, and numerous Americans say that they do not recognize America any longer. The Heritage Foundation is promoting American values and has found a way to help any citizen who is “concerned about the direction of the country.” In a prepared statement today, Heritage Foundation President Kay C. James  said the following:

America is at this historic intersection and has a choice between two paths….

What we do today will determine what kind of future we leave for future generations…. “The Citizen’s Guide to Fight for America” is an action plan for Americans who want to hand off a better America to our children and grandchildren.

            The “citizen’s guide” can be found at this site. It is “designed as a tool kit” and includes a pledge to support “law enforcement, promote voter registration, and write letters to local newspapers.” Rob Bluey, Heritage’s vice president of communications, made the following statement.

Americans should be personally and actively invested in how we are governed and how our society operates…. Unfortunately, civic literacy and citizen engagement are at an all-time low in America…. Heritage refuses to accept an apathetic electorate that surrenders its future to the elites in Washington and Hollywood. The citizen’s guide is not only a toolkit, but also a mobilization engine to propel Americans to fight for what makes our country great.

            If you are not sure how to write an effective letter to the editor or to make guest commentaries, the toolkit has help for you. If you want to learn about the issues or information on policies, go to the toolkit. If you want to learn how to communicate more effectively, there is help in the toolkit.
