About Americans for Prosperity

Our Mission

Freedom Oriented. Activist Supported. Community Driven. Americans for Prosperity is a network of citizens that work on behalf of freedom for their communities — whether it’s local, state or federal issues, we’re leading the way in engaging with elected officials to make change for our friends and neighbors.  We engage debate and ignite action because we believe that free markets make free and prosperous people. We want more for Americans, and we think we can achieve it by advancing a few key pillars:

  • Leaving our children with more financial security by putting the brakes on government spending
  • Protecting opportunity for all, by preventing red tape from stifling the small businesses and entrepreneurs that are ready to move America forward
  • Getting government to clear the way for every American, not just special interests

Who We Are

We are 2.3 million engaged citizens, and we’re growing every day. We live in all 50 states, and we’re connected by 34 state chapters. We may not share family or even geography, but all of us are committed to spreading opportunity across America. We don’t believe that letters and phone calls are enough to make real change — we know it requires growing roots in the communities where we live and work. We’re each citizen leaders, and we want your help!

What We Do

AFP’s network of organized and influential citizen leaders is working to change the nation one state at a time.

  • AFP mobilizes citizens to effectively make their voices heard in public policy issue campaigns.
  • AFP educates citizens about where their elected officials stand on the economic issues that matter to us.
  • AFP is leading the way in creating the technology and economies of scale that can help citizen-leaders succeed.
  • AFP leverages our comparative advantages with those of other groups by building coalitions of local, state, and national grassroots organizations fighting for a common cause.
