Our freedom of speech is on the line.
It’s become clearer and clearer the last few months that the Big Tech giants have turned against America’s founding principles. Facebook, Google, and other major social media platforms have started to suppress vital information and censor free speech, especially conservative speech.
Conservatives are facing down an online environment where, if nothing is done, anyone who doesn’t parrot Leftist talking points will be silenced and suspended. It’s time to put our foot down and say loud and clear: this treatment is not acceptable, and cannot continue.
After their blatant behavior in the period leading up to the 2020 elections—which included censoring vital news stories and suppressing conservative viewpoints—we have refused to accept six-figure donations from both Facebook and Google.
Heritage President Kay C. James told Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook:
“We cannot in good conscience accept money from a company that repeatedly and blatantly targets conservative speech . . . Every time a new form of censorship comes to light, your company apologizes and promises to do better. Enough with the apologies. Fix it.”
Ms. James also wrote to Google CEO Sundar Pichai:
“Google has become a vital part of how we share information. But instead of being a true friend of free speech, you are increasingly using your market dominance to act as partisan censors eager to suppress speech with which you don’t agree. Isn’t this the sort of evil Google once foreswore?”
This leaves us free and independent to expose Big Tech’s abuses—but also means that we’re going to need grassroots support more than ever. That’s where you come in.
Your donation to Heritage will push back against the Left’s attacks on America’s founding principles of free expression, constitutional limited government, free enterprise, national security, strong borders, and the rule of law. When you give, you’re unleashing our policy experts to:
- Advise members of Congress on critical policy issues from a conservative viewpoint. This includes analysis of the proposals in Washington to rein in Google, Facebook, Twitter, and other technology companies through antitrust action or changes in liability protections.
- Educate leaders and millions of Americans on how to apply America’s founding principles to the policy problems and controversies of today.
- Educate students, young professionals, and civic leaders on the foundational principles of American political thought and the important policy debates facing our country.
- Keep Americans educated on the issues that matter like election fraud, healthcare and immigration.
- Provide internships for college students to learn from leading conservative minds through policy briefings, in-house mentorship, experience working alongside our experts, and courses on the First Principles that make America exceptional.
- And much more . . .
When so much is at stake, Americans needs strategic, effective experts and advocates like The Heritage Foundation—and wise supporters like you.
To ensure that America’s constitutional freedoms, free government, free markets, pro-family values, and civic virtue survive the current onslaught of leftwing elites, will you support Heritage today?
Your tax-deductible donation now will help Heritage protect the foundations of our free society.
Yes, I will help the Heritage Foundation stop the progressive left—whether Big Government or Big Tech—from trampling on our First Amendment rights and silencing conservative views!
Thank you for your gift to the Heritage Foundation!
You know that sound conservative policy is the best answer to our nation’s problems.
But the liberal left and the Washington Establishment have been blinded by fake news and a stubborn resolve to keep the status quo. This is unacceptable! They have to feel the heat—and that’s where Heritage Action for America comes in. Heritage Action’s lobbyists and grassroots activists put political pressure on legislators and lawmakers to get The Heritage Foundation’s policies across the finish line. Each and every day, Heritage Action is pressuring lawmakers to step it up and fix health care, stop amnesty, and pass welfare reform—or they’ll feel the heat at the polls. But we can’t do this without you.
