We are dedicated to restoring and protecting the American Commitment to free markets, economic growth, Constitutionally-limited government, property rights, and individual freedom.
American Commitment engages in critical public policy fights over the size and intrusiveness of government through direct advocacy, strategic policy analysis, and grassroots mobilization. Working with key partners, American Commitment delivers timely, effective public policy research to the broader free-market movement.
American Commitment is led by Phil Kerpen, one of the most effective and influential free-market advocates in Washington. Kerpen was the principal policy and legislative strategist at Americans for Prosperity for over five years. He previously worked at the Free Enterprise Fund, the Club for Growth, and the Cato Institute. Kerpen is a columnist on Fox News Opinion, a contributing editor for National Review Online, chairman of the Internet Freedom Coalition, and author of the book Democracy Denied: How Obama Is Bypassing Congress to Radically Transform America and How to Stop Him.
American Commitment is designed to fill the capabilities gap between think tanks engaged in pure public policy work and grassroots organizations engaged in mobilizing citizen activists.
