About the Organization

The Free Enterprise Project, housed within the National Center for Public Policy Research, is the nation’s leading conservative investor advocacy organization.

Within the business community, FEP works on a broad array of policy issues including free speech, health care, energy, religious liberty, the 2nd Amendment, and more.
