About Us

[J. C. Hawkins photo by Cameron Davidson]

The Forgotten Street advocates traditional American values, supports intellectual diversity, promotes the free market and educates the public about the inherent dangers that elites pose to freedom everywhere.

Our mission is to reclaim the heart of America, to bring Americans together again with a sense of common purpose to address major national issues and promote an American consensus for constructive solutions to our most pressing problems.

While conservatives and liberals will always disagree on specific issues and policies, the need for unity and consensus on our national security, our financial future and traditional American values must trump partisan politics. The Forgotten Street will promote what is great about America, and how we can work together to make it better.

Founder J. C. Hawkins  serves as advocate for The Forgotten Street. He is a communications expert whose career includes work as a newspaper reporter, corporate executive and public relations entrepreneur.

A Pittsburgh native and a graduate of Princeton University, he has spent more than 30 years involved in the debate on such major issues as healthcare reform, national energy policy, climate change, highway safety, wildlife conservation and academic freedom.

Like many of his generation, J. C. received an education heavily slanted to the liberal and anti-war agenda, with little opportunity to hear the other point of view. His subsequent work experience in the real world, and his exposure to the courageous principles and ideas advocated by Ronald Reagan, won him over to the conservative side. Now he believes Americans should speak up to defend Main Street values and secure the future for our children and grandchildren.

J. C. is available for project writing assignments as well as speaking engagements for college and civic groups.  Please contact him at
