The past week has been another exciting one for the American Principles Project.
Last Wednesday we celebrated our 2nd annual ‘Red, White and Blue’ Gala, which was a great success and received unprecedented media coverage.
I hope that you were able to join us, but if you were unable to attend – here’s what you missed:
Senator Rand Paul was our keynote speaker for the evening. It was a great honor for us to have him attend and he gave a very powerful speech, which garnered a great deal of media attention. You can watch his remarks below, and I assure you it is well worth your time. This video includes an introduction for Senator Paul by APP’s Chairman, Sean Fieler.
Following Senator Paul, both APP’s President Frank Cannon and Executive Director Marion Boteju addressed the crowd to discuss APP’s work thus far and what is to come in 2014. Please take a few moments to watch their presentations.

We also had the honor of hosting a very special guest, Michael Reagan, who offered a toast in honor of his father, Ronald Reagan. You can watch his remarks and toast here:
During the Gala we debuted a new video, which promotes APP’s mission and purpose, and features memorable news clips and APP television appearances from 2013.
You can watch this new video “Human Dignity at the Heart of Public Policy” here:

We would also like to offer special thanks to Monsignor Stuart Swetland, of Mount St. Mary’s University, who lead our evening in prayer.
Our 2nd annual ‘Red, White and Blue’ Gala was a tremendous success. We had an enthusiastic crowd, good food, and empowering presentations about life, liberty, and the foundational principles of our nation.
The room was ablaze with people who hold steadfast hope for the future of our country and who are ready to join the battle for America in 2014.
We can never be silent. We must never be passive. We must continue to do everything in our power to fight for America and for the principles that make our nation great.
Thank you for supporting the American Principles Project and we look forward to working with you throughout 2014.
