A special message

A special message from Heritage’s president, Kay Coles James.


Over the last several weeks I’ve had the privilege of traveling the country to meet with many of you in your hometowns.

I’ve traveled from coast to coast and been reminded of the greatness of the American people.

The more Heritage members I meet the more inspired and encouraged I am to continue on in this fight to reclaim America.

As I mentioned to those of you who attended the events, I wake up every morning excited to work at a place that allows me to lead the fight for the conservative principles you and I hold dear.

Thank you for giving me that opportunity.

It is people like you that truly make this country the greatest nation in the world.

I’ve included a few photos from the events below for your enjoyment.

 

 

 

I hope to meet you in person at one of our next events or at our office in Washington, DC whenever you are in town.

Very best,

Kay Coles James

How the Left wants to solve school safety

Last weekend, thousands of people traveled to Washington, DC to participate in a march against school shootings.

Their solution to the issue of school safety is to increase gun control.

The Daily Signal’s Genevieve Wood talked with participants of the march about what they thought should be done to solve school violence.

This is what they had to say:

Later, Genevieve joined Fox News to discuss school safety policies.

Heritage is continuing to lead the fight on this critical issue.

Getting exclusive access to the White House

Last week, Heritage’s alternative news site, The Daily Signal, continued it’s rise above the Mainstream Media by gaining exclusive access to the White House’s Generation Next event for millennials.

This event was focused on preparing the Millennial generation to enter the work force as qualified, productive workers.

This is a mission that Heritage is in alignment with and works on through our Young Leaders Internship program and our Congressional Fellows program that prepares young conservatives for their future careers in the conservative movement and the public service spheres.

It was an honor for us to be the media outlet the White House chose to share their message on millennial outreach.

The team interviewed several White House officials, including Ivanka Trump, Kellyanne Conway, Mercedes Schlapp, Labor Secretary Alex Acosta, and HHS Secretary Alex Azar.

You can view their interviews below:
