Today, Ivanka Trump came by Heritage for a surprise visit at the invitation of Heritage’s new president, Kay Coles James.

Ivanka received a full tour of Heritage and met many of our experts and staff as well as had a private briefing with our Heritage interns. Upon completion of the tour Ivanka suggested having a number of her policy team come by Heritage for regular briefings.

Afterwards, Heritage president Kay James visited the White House at the invitation of President Trump for a public proclamation signing honoring Martin Luther King, Jr.

Relationships like these, with leaders in Washington, demonstrate the impact your support of Heritage. As a Heritage member, your voice is being heard by the most powerful people in our country.

Thank you for making this possible.

If you could ask Ivanka Trump one question, what would it be?

One way your conservative principles continue to be shared through Heritage is by experts testifying before Congress on pressing issues such as the threat of China’s military.

This week was no exception as Dean Cheng, senior research fellow in Heritage’s Asian Studies Center, testified before the House Armed Services Committee’s Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities surrounding China’s pursuit of emerging and exponential military technology.

Watch his full statement below:

Do you agree with Cheng’s analysis of the threat China poses? 

On Tuesday, after rumors of talk show host Oprah Winfrey running for president in 2020, newly-elected Heritage president Kay Coles James took to Twitter to invite Winfrey to debate.

James is never one to shy away from a good debate and Heritage is always open for sharing the conservative perspective on today’s issues.

It remains to be seen whether Winfrey will accept the challenge to debate or not.

If Winfrey came to Heritage, what issues would you want to be discussed?

Heritage’s B. Kenneth Simon Center for Principles and Politics works to keep alive our Founders’ legacy and to apply our Founding principles to the thorny questions of the day.

Our country must stay rooted in the principles that have made it the great country that it is.

As a Heritage member, you have made a tremendous impact in educating Americans on our tradition of natural rights, republicanism and constitutionalism.

Below is list of the Center’s top publications that have received thousands of views this year.

1. First Principles Essays (in-depth essays written by leading scholars on the most important ideas, statesmen, political movements, and documents in American political thought)

3. Special Reports (in-depth analysis of a particular question) Four have more than 10,000 views—including 1 with more than 50,000 views.

Heritage’s Ryan Anderson has been busy combatting the lies of the Left through his persuasive writing on the top social issues of our times.

In his latest book, When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment, he tackles the transgender issue head-on.

According to the publisher:

America is in the midst of what has been called a “transgender moment.” Not long ago, most Americans had never heard of transgender identity, but within the space of a year it became a cause claiming the mantle of civil rights.

But can a boy truly be “trapped” in a girl’s body? Can modern medicine really “reassign” sex? Is sex something “assigned” in the first place? What’s the loving response to a friend or child experiencing a gender-identity conflict? What should our law say on these issues?

When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment provides thoughtful answers to all of these questions. Drawing on the best insights from biology, psychology, and philosophy, Ryan T. Anderson offers a balanced approach to the policy issues, a nuanced vision of human embodiment, and a sober and honest survey of the human costs of getting human nature wrong.

Regarding the book people are saying:

When Harry Became Sally is an eminently readable and insightful guide for all who find themselves perplexed by today’s debates on gender identity. Ryan Anderson’s analysis of the ideas that are fueling the transgender movement, their human costs and their political implications will be a valuable resource for parents, educators and policy makers.
Mary Ann Glendon, Learned Hand Professor of Law, Harvard University, and author of Rights Talk and A Nation Under Lawyers.

For an informed and sensitive presentation of gender identity issues, When Harry Became Sally is a must-read book. It is especially a must for those in psychiatry, psychology and counselling.
Paul Vitz, Professor Emeritus of Psychology, New York University, and Senior Scholar, Institute for the Psychological Sciences.

I always read Ryan Anderson with great admiration. When Harry Became Sally is an always focused, informative, fair-minded, lucid and fact-based guide to just and reasonable policies in place of government- and corporation-mandated falsification of science, medicine, public records and history; suppression of free speech and family rights; and many-sided, often irreversible injustice to the vulnerable.
John Finnis, Professor of Law & Legal Philosophy Emeritus, University of Oxford.

I hope you will take the opportunity to read Anderson’s book and find out the truth of the transgender movement.

You can pre-order your own copy on Amazon today.

Anderson and Heritage will continue to courageously address these sensitive issues that our country struggles with.

What do you think is the biggest social issue of our day? Why do you think the Left pushes so hard on these social issues?
