Issue Areas

Education, dialogue, and challenge are essential for developing innovative solutions to our most critical issues. From eliminating barriers to opportunity to giving the previously incarcerated second chances and keeping America safe, we support bold ideas that spur entrepreneurship and promote prosperity.

Our Focus

The Institute offers educational programs and partners with other non-profits to educate the public about some of the biggest challenges facing our country: criminal justice and policing reform, foreign policy, free speech and toleration, technology and innovation, and barriers to opportunity such as corporate welfare, K–12 education, and occupational licensure. Our goal is to spark a national conversation on these vital topics and inspire thought leaders, students, and scholars to find new ways to improve people’s lives.
