Heritage believes strongly in educating and preparing the next generation of Americans to be leaders for conservatism.
One key way Heritage educates the next generation is through our exceptional internship program that teaches these young leaders the founding principles of our nation while providing them a place to put those principles into action.
Many of these interns have gone on to be great leaders for the conservative movement.
This week Marjorie Dannenfelser, former Heritage intern and President of the pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List, received the Distinguished Alumni Award for her work in the pro-life movement. She sat down with The Daily Signal’s Senior Vice President Rob Bluey to discuss how the Susan B. Anthony List was created and you can watch her interview below to find out more about this incredible group.
In 1992, Dannenfelser, who had worked for Members of Congress on both sides of the aisle, founded the Susan B. Anthony List out of her living room with the goal of increasing the number of pro-life women in federal and statewide office.
Since then the Susan B. Anthony List has helped elect more than 105 candidates to the U.S. House of Representatives, 20 to the U.S. Senate, and 19 to other statewide offices across the country.
How important is it to train and prepare the next generation of conservative leaders? What is the best way to accomplish this?
