Congratulations to Institute For Justice: www.ij.org
Here’s what Christy Ann has to say about this fearless organization:
“The merry band of litigators at the Institute For Justice knows how it goes for folks who are just starting up: ‘If there is any ironclad rule of entrepreneurship, it is that every new innovation is likely to be attacked by businesses and regulators opposed to change.’ With the motto ‘Litigating for Liberty,’ this civil liberties law firm changes the legal landscape for small businesses and entrepreneurs across the U.S. They represent courageous clients and they take ‘fearless’ to any level needed, including winning 4 of 5 Supreme Court cases since 2002.
Donations support good works: IJ consistently receives top honors from Charity Navigator.”
A little more info:
“Founded in 1991, the Institute for Justice is what a civil liberties law firm should be. As the national law firm for liberty, we stick to a clear mission engaging in cutting-edge litigation and advocacy both in the courts of law and in the court of public opinion on behalf of individuals whose most basic rights are denied by the government. Our four pillars of litigation are private property, economic liberty, free speech and school choice. Simply put, we seek a rule of law under which individuals can control their destinies as free and responsible members of society.”
