Former Vice President Mike Pence has announced the creation of a new conservative advocacy organization, Advancing American Freedom, to put forward policies prominent during the administration of former President Donald J. Trump.
In a statement about the group’s launch, Pence said the goal of the organization is to “build on the success of the last four years by promoting traditional conservative values and promoting the successful policies of the Trump administration.”
“Conservatives will not stand idly by as the radical Left and the new administration attempt to threaten America’s standing as the greatest nation in the world with their destructive policies,” he also said in his statement last week.
The group’s executive director, Paul Teller, said as well, “Under the leadership of President Trump and Vice President Pence, Americans experienced unprecedented prosperity. The policies that led to those accomplishments are now under attack by the radical Left and the Biden Administration, and the foundation of our Nation is under siege. Advancing American Freedom will push back against the Left’s agenda and champion policies across the country that advance American liberties, American strength and security, and American prosperity.”

The group will “engage in policy discussions and issue advocacy at both the state and federal level by proposing conservative policy solutions to the economic (American Prosperity), foreign policy (American Strength & Security), and constitutional issues that confront Americans today (American Liberties),” the organization said in its statement.
