WHO WE ARE

The Freedom Foundation is more than a think tank. We’re more than an action tank. We’re a battle tank that’s battering the entrenched power of left-wing government union bosses who represent a permanent lobby for bigger government, higher taxes, and radical social agendas.

Through education, litigation, legislation, and community activation we have liberated public employees from political exploitation.
