Free Speech & Peace
Protecting diversity of views and promoting courageous collaboration across difference
The greatest advances in human progress — personal, social, and scientific — flow from our ability to freely and productively exchange different ideas and engage with each other. Civil liberties — including press freedom, religious liberty, and freedom of conscience, speech, and association — create the conditions for people to discover more about themselves and the world around them.
We work alongside partners who defend those rights for people with diverse beliefs, and test and scale the tools that build the capacity in individuals and communities to hold difference productively and to work together to learn, grow, and change the world for the better.
