David Azerrad devotes his time and research at The Heritage Foundation to increasing public understanding of America’s founding principles.
As director of the B. Kenneth Simon Center for Principles and Politics, Azerrad teaches the tenets of the American political tradition to policymakers, political leaders and the public, while connecting the nation’s first principles to the thorny questions of the day.
In November 2015, Azerrad also became Heritage’s first AWC Family Foundation fellow. The Nashville-based foundation has supported Heritage’s work to defend and promote founding principles since 2009.
A popular speaker, Azerrad gives talks around the country on topics related to the American Founding, constitutionalism, modern liberalism and conservatism, and the American Dream. He has spoken on many college campuses and addressed audiences in more than 25 states.
