Human dignity is under attack

Mission & Purpose

APP Foundation was founded in 2009 with a mission to tackle issues critical to protecting human dignity. As such, we recognize that a flourishing society requires public policy with human dignity at its heart — and that can only happen when we affirm the family as the primary institution of society. Since our founding, we have employed our resources to educate lawmakers and the public at large about the problems facing families and what policy solutions could help strengthen them.

APP Foundation is a small organization but prides itself on being one of the most effective and influential pro-family groups in Washington, DC. Our size enables us to be agile and have laser-like focus on the most urgent issues facing families, especially those issues which may not be receiving adequate attention. We have spent the last few years combating anti-family initiatives that progressives have introduced at both the state and federal level.

These efforts have included, among others:

  • Defending the fundamental right of parents to oversee their children’s education by sounding the alarm about the imposition of the Common Core standards in schools nationwide, publishing detailed research exposing the deep flaws in the standards, and providing activists with the tools to fight to reclaim local control of education.
  • Protecting the religious liberty of families by drawing attention to the growing threats to freedom of conscience which have multiplied in recent years, often unbeknownst to most Americans.
  • Advancing new pro-family policy ideas through initiatives such as our “Contract with American Families.”

Today, APP Foundation continues to promote a pro-family vision in the public square through rigorous debate, scholarship, awareness, and education. We welcome collaboration with all who embrace the goal of protecting and strengthening the American family.
