  • Making Policy Research Accessible to Us All

    With our freedoms under assault on so many fronts—at the Supreme Court, in Congress, in the Executive Branch, and at the state level—how can Americans stay up-to-speed on current public policy concerns? To better provide the news and analysis you need, in the format you want, this week Heritage has given our website a major overhaul.

    Now all ten landing pages in Heritage’s ten-year Leadership for America campaign feature an easy-to-use, organized layout. From hot topics like Health Care and Enterprise & Free Markets, to important issues affecting our future including Energy & Environment and Entitlements, these ten landing pages link to the latest blog posts, videos, commentary and in-depth reports by Heritage researchers.

    First Principles, which applies the Constitution to today’s policy battles, appropriately was the first landing page to be refreshed. For some of the ten action teams, this relaunch has been more than a cosmetic makeover.

    Heritage’s Rule of Law team launched an e-newsletter, Liberty and Justice for All, in tandem with the redesign. Thousands of readers joined the list before a single edition was even sent. This enabled Heritage to survey subscribers and use their valuable input to create features that would best serve readers’ needs. Learn more and sign up for Heritage e-newsletters here.

    Whether you are most concerned about domestic issues like Education, foreign policy (American Leadership, Protect America), or social matters (Family & Religion), the new heritage.org is designed to be more than just visually appealing. Each new headline, analysis, and video reflects a grand vision for the future of America—based not on whims or what’s popular, but rather on our nation’s founding principles.

    What do you think of the new look? Please provide your comments and ideas below.

    1. Science Policy says:

      I commend you for ascertaining that science policy is a major concern in policy today and would encourage you to consider that not all policy issues involving science, technology, and medicine fit into the categories of "Health" and "Energy and Environment." These two designations, in my opinion, are (1) too limiting and (2) separate what come under one umbrella. Some policy issues involving science, technology, and medicine do not fit under either category and others fit under both. Consider where you would place genetically modified organisms or nuclear power? What category will cover topics of science policy and national security including biological, chemical, and nuclear weapons and cyber security?

      I love Heritage and it's spear point focus on all that makes America Great. Just went through the 'Introduction to the Constitution' by Dr. Larry Arnn. Well done sir, well done. Online education at it's finest.

      Now with more ways to get educated with the Leadership for America series and new Liberty and Justice for All enewsletter, I'm really loving it. Every team player learns that when everything around them 'seems to be going stupid' going back to basics will overcome a lot of adversity.

      Keep up the good fight and thanks for helping to save America from the assault of her enemies, foreign AND domestic.

      I'm excited, anything you can do to make our Government easier to research and understand will help us all! Americans need to stand together and knowledge is the path to Freedom for us all!
      Thank you Heritage!

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
