About Principles That Matter

In case you’re curious, Principles That Matter is a Colorado-based 501(c)(3) non-profit, non-partisan initiative dedicated to connecting modern citizens with timeless principles.

PTM is singularly focused on reaching disengaged, moderate citizens and introducing them to effective public policy perspectives and solutions based on principles of the American founding.

This focus on middle-of-the-road citizens has led to groundbreaking research on the media habits, demographics, behaviors, and values of many segments of our society. PTM’s research is increasingly used by Colorado and national policy organizations and elected officials.

PTM also conducts trainings to help stakeholders and elected officials better understand how to connect with moderate citizens and effectively communicate policies based on principle.
