Through global reach and global power, we have the ability to hold the interests of any adversary in the world at risk within minutes. But, there is one vulnerability that threatens to significantly degrade our ability to not only project power abroad, but protect our own homeland – electromagnetic pulse. The American Leadership and Policy Foundation has produced objective, vetted research that exposes the vulnerabilities of the United States’ power grid and, more specifically, the nuclear power grid and associated generation facilities. While the threats of EMP caused by a high-altitude nuclear detonation, or the similar force of massive geomagnetic disturbance event, are neither novel nor probable, they represent a real existential threat that could render useless all means of offensive and defensive actions in all domains of military operations.
The American Leadership & Policy Foundation (ALPF) is the first foundation of its kind.
ALPF is America’s only citizen directed research and policy foundation. We serve America by providing research by the people, for the people. In a climate where special interest groups and corporations dominate the public policy arena, ALPF provides a critical counterbalance. The perspective and research generated by ALPF originates with civically concerned thought leaders, experts, and professionals who generate world-class policy analysis from the frontline of their respective fields.
The ALPF was founded in 2014 as an IRS 501(c)3 nonprofit, non-partisan, public policy think tank.
We work for you. ALPF specializes in educating and informing citizens and leaders on our nation’s most significant public policy issues; we also specialize in developing leaders and civic engagement programs to ensure citizens understand that their involvement in civics is critical to America’s continued freedom and prosperity. Our purpose is simple – provide pure perspective and leadership for a strong America.

American Leadership & Policy Foundation is funded exclusively by people like you and does not accept corporate or special interest funding and grants. We work for the people of the United States and are wholly committed to developing the kind of policy solutions and leadership that benefit our citizens first.
