The American Action Forum is a 21st Century center-right policy institute providing actionable research and analysis to solve America’s most pressing policy challenges. Led by Douglas Holtz-Eakin, former Director of the Congressional Budget Office, AAF injects forward-thinking ideas into the public debate that will build a better economic future, promoting innovative, free-market solutions to create a smaller, smarter government. AAF provides data-driven insight to today’s defining domestic policy challenges, utilizes both in-house policy experts and a broad network of outside experts, and deploys modern communications approaches to express ideas and effectively engage policymakers, thought leaders, academics, media, and the general public. In just the few years since its 2009 founding, AAF has proudly led the center-right policy debate on issues ranging from debt, health care, taxes, immigration, and more. Its work is routinely utilized by center-right leaders who understand that government has an important, but limited role in protecting freedoms, promoting a vibrant private sector, and serving US citizens more effectively. The American Action Forum is an independent, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, and it is not affiliated with or controlled by any political group. Its focus is to educate the public about the complex policy choices now facing the country, and explain as cogently and forcefully as possible why solutions grounded in the center-right values that have guided the country thus far still represent the best way forward for America's future. It will stay neutral in elections, and by and large will leave its sister organization, the American Action Network, to engage in any appropriate direct legislative advocacy in support of the policy proposals it discusses. Like the Network, the Forum welcomes policy ideas consistent with its center-right values from any source, regardless of party affiliation, and aims to make its educational materials available to members of the public of all political stripes.
