American Principles Project is an education reform organization based in Washington, D.C. and led by Francis P. Cannon. The organization was founded by Robert P. George, who also serves as the chair of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF).

The organization's mission statement is:

The American Principles Project recognizes the dignity of the person as the basis of the founding principles of the United States. We are committed to the declaration made by the Founding Fathers, that we are all “created equal, endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights, and among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

APP believes that local and national policies that respect the dignity of the person will lead to a flourishing society. As such, we educate and advocate for public policy solutions that respect and affirm: human life from conception to natural death; the union of one man and one woman as the definition of marriage; the freedom to practice and proclaim religion; authentic economic progress for working Americans; education in service of the comprehensive development of the person; and, the legacy of immigrants in contributing to the American story.

We are dedicated to promoting these principles in the public square through rigorous debate, scholarship, education and advocacy. We welcome collaboration with all who embrace these principles.
