I’M CHRISTOPHER F. RUFO.
I’m a writer, filmmaker, and senior fellow at Manhattan Institute.
I’ve directed four films for PBS, including my latest, America Lost, and am a contributing editor of City Journal, where I cover critical race theory, homelessness, addiction, crime, and other afflictions. My investigative reporting recently led President Trump to issue an executive order banning critical race theory from the federal government.
I’m a graduate of Georgetown University, former visiting fellow in domestic policy studies at the Heritage Foundation, and former Lincoln Fellow at the Claremont Institute. I live in the Seattle area with my wife and children.
