Americans for Prosperity

Americans for Prosperity (AFP) is expanding its broad-based grassroots advocacy efforts in Alabama. This expansion marks the 37th state where AFP is actively working to advance liberty and economic opportunity for all Americans. 

The chapter will be led by Adam Thompson, who for the past two years has been leading a national AFP policy team focusing on foundational education, post-secondary education, criminal justice, and free speech. Thompson brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the role and will be responsible for leading AFP’s efforts to hold state government officials accountable to the people they serve and to advance freedom and opportunity through broad-based grassroots outreach. 

“I am thrilled to lead AFP’s Alabama chapter as we work to cut regulations, expand access to economic opportunity across our state, and fight for educational freedom for every child,” said Thompson. 

Thompson is a state government veteran, having served as deputy commissioner of a state cabinet agency as well as in senior roles for Governor Kay Ivey, a state auditor and three secretaries of state. Thompson also was a Republican candidate for state auditor in 2014.  

“As a lifelong Alabamian I’m proud to lead AFP’s expansion into Alabama. AFP is driven by a core belief: every person has unique gifts that enable them to realize their American Dream. Our vision is to remove the barriers preventing people from using those gifts and achieving that dream by elevating the voices of everyday Alabamians to advocate for the principles and policies of a free and open society,” Thompson concluded.
