Almost Heaven, West Virginia!
John Denver’s familiar song is usually the first thing that comes to mind when someone thinks of the Mountain State.
Unfortunately, it’s often followed by poverty, the opioid crisis, or a myriad of dismal statistics.
To be as idyllic as Denver’s song imagines, West Virginia needs a miracle!
But real-life miracles don’t just happen. They must be built. To this end, the Cardinal Institute is dedicated to building the West Virginia Miracle through the principles of freedom.
In just four years, we have brought Right to Work and Education Choice to West Virginia – renewing the heritage of freedom embodied by our state motto: Mountaineers are Always Free.
But the West Virginia Miracle isn’t just about the Mountain State.
If a revival of free enterprise and rugged individualism can turn around West Virginia, imagine what it could do for the rest of rural America!
The Cardinal Institute can’t build it alone.
Join us and together we can build the West Virginia Miracle!
Located in Charleston, the Cardinal Institute for West Virginia Policy, Inc. is a 501c(3) non-profit founded in 2014 to research, develop, and communicate effective free market public policies for West Virginia.
