We care about issues that matter

Education and dialogue on our most critical issues is essential for developing innovative solutions and bold new ideas.

  • Criminal Justice & Policing Reform

    We support criminal justice reforms that keep our communities safe by respecting human dignity and emphasizing public safety.

  • Free Speech & Toleration

    Protecting good ideas and speech means protecting all ideas and speech, so long as they do not violate the person, property, or liberty of others.

  • Foreign Policy

    We work to expand the public debate about what foreign policy will make us more safe and secure, and we support a new generation of experts re-examining prevailing orthodoxy.

  • Stopping Corporate Welfare
