Overview
Freedom House, America’s longest-standing nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting freedom and democracy, was founded in 1941 by Eleanor Roosevelt and Wendell Willkie as a bipartisan voice to counter the isolationist sentiment that swept the country in response to World War II. The organization analyzes the challenges to freedom in its annual publications, advocates for political and civil rights, and supports frontline activists in promoting democratic change abroad. This grant will provide general support to Freedom House as it reorients itself to focus more on restoring U.S. leadership on liberal democracy and its values, and on catalyzing a movement of renewed support for and commitment to those values throughout the nation.
