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.
Former Washington State Rep. Bob Williams and Lynn Harsh create the Evergreen Freedom Foundation,
envisioning a traditional think tank advancing free-market, limited government ideals.
The Freedom Foundation doesn’t have— and doesn’t want — the power to force workers to leave their union. All we do is inform them they have a constitutional right to do so.
And when we do, they opt out in droves.
When government employees opt out, their dues deductions disappear and unions can no longer continue to fund a radical political agenda with someone else’s money.
The Freedom Foundation had already been battling Big Labor for more than 20 years by the time the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed the right of public employees to decline or fund a union.
The Freedom Foundation promotes free markets and limited, accountable government
at every level. We do this by taking on the largest, most relentless obstacle to these
objectives — public-sector unions that claim to represent workers but only want to
plunder their paychecks and use the money to fund radical political candidates and causes.
From our humble beginnings, the Freedom Foundation has grown over the years to become the foremost authority on public sector unions and strives to help public sector workers know their rights.
