About Us

Liberty in Action is the Institute for Justice’s nationwide grassroots activism project. We train and mobilize citizens to be advocates for free speech, economic liberty, educational choice, property rights and liberty in their communities and beyond.

Our goal is to provide activists around the country with the tools and strategies necessary to vindicate their constitutional rights at the grassroots level, and we travel the nation to meet with and educate concerned citizens and their communities.

Although we’re unable to litigate or become actively involved in every situation, we will provide you with the tools and tips you need to effectively fight the abuse of government power in your own backyard. We will do whatever we can to help you defend your right to earn an honest living free from arbitrary regulations, choose the school that is right for your child, keep the private property you rightfully own, and protect your right to speak freely.

Recent graduates interested in changing the world at the grassroots through outreach, community organizing, training, coalition building, and public demonstrations may apply for IJ’s Maffucci Fellowship at ij.org/jobs.

We look forward to working with you.
