Founded in 1976, the Ethics and Public Policy Center is Washington, D.C.’s premier institute working to apply the riches of the Jewish and Christian traditions to contemporary questions of law, culture, and politics, in pursuit of America’s continued civic and cultural renewal.
In pursuit of our mission, we work closely with Americans at all tiers of society, advising policymakers and religious leaders alike, engaging the courts and the education system, and working closely with parents and other culture-makers to apply the truth in daily life. We equip Americans who cherish our founding ideals and our nation’s rich Jewish and Christian heritage to think through the ethical, political, and cultural questions facing them in the twenty-first century, and find the help they need to live those truths out.
We are focused on the following priorities:
Pushing back against the extreme progressive agenda while building a 2024 consensus for conservatives.
Shaping the future of Jewish and Christian public witness for all who seek to lead full lives as faithful believers and engaged citizens.
Developing a humane conservatism and advancing economic policies that serve working families rather than elites and Big Tech oligarchs.
Supporting culture makers and assisting families in living out their faith in their homes and in the public square.
