Sutherland Launches New Website

Sutherland Institute recently announced the launch of its new website, http://www.sutherlandinstitute.org/. The new site will allow elected officials, community leaders, the media, and interested citizens easier access to reliable, accurate information and analysis.

“Sutherland provides an essential independent voice in the public debate in Utah,” said Lyall Swim, director of operations at Sutherland Institute. “This website will help us extend the reach of our efforts by improving the public’s access to research and publications that underscore the role of conservative principles in sound public policy.”

Some of the new features on SutherlandInstitute.org include improved navigation, a secure contribution page, and an online events calendar that will include all of Sutherland’s programs and events, including the award-winning Transcend Series. The site also boasts an expanded publications section (which incorporates the Sutherland Journal of Law and Public Policy), a virtual press room, and a legislation page that summarizes and updates the policy initiatives Sutherland is pursuing.

“Much time and thought has gone into this project,” said Katie Christensen, public relations manager for Sutherland Institute. “We want to make sure that our governing principles – personal responsibility, family, religion, private property, free markets, charity, and limited government – serve as a constant theme throughout the website, because those principles function as the filter through which we see and act.”

In the upcoming months, more features will be added to Sutherland’s website, including a blog, a multi-media center, and an updated version of www.utahschools.org.
