Founder’s message: Free press, free speech and free spirit. These are the guiding principles of the Freedom Forum. 

The first two are easy to grasp:

  • Free Press: the freedom to print or broadcast without censorship.
  • Free Speech: the freedom to speak without compromise.
  • Free Spirit is harder to define.
  • Free spirits dream, dare and do. A free spirit can also be a risk-taker, a visionary, an innovative leader, an entrepreneur or a courageous achiever who accomplishes great things beyond his or her normal circumstances.

The Freedom Forum is committed to nurturing freedom across the USA. We hope the information on this website will inspire you to join in our mission to promote free press, free speech and free spirit for all people.
