Over the weekend, in a dim corner of Washington D.C. and in a quiet recess of the Pentagon, a national security tragedy occurred with little notice or fanfare. On Sept. 30, the Congressional Commission to Assess the Threat of Electromagnetic Pulse to the United States of America (or EMP Commission) was shut down indefinitely. Since 2000, the EMP Commission, an unpaid team of leading scientists, engineers, and security experts has worked tirelessly to test, understand, and uncover risks posed to our nation’s civil and military infrastructure by Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP). EMP is a well known physical electromagnetic phenomena generated by a nuclear or special weapon or coronial mass ejection (CME).
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.
