The Independent Institute stands as a beacon to unite you and countless others to boldly advance peaceful, prosperous, and free societies grounded in a commitment to human worth and dignity.

This year:

  • We expanded and improved our outreach to millennials through an ambitious media campaign that built on the success of our award-winning video series Love Gov: From First Date to Mandate (see pp. 14–15).

  • We inaugurated the New Bridges to Liberty event series, which gathered hundreds in Dallas and San Francisco to discuss applications of the principles of liberty and invigorate networks to promote liberty in their own communities (see p. 13).

  • Our Center on Entrepreneurial Innovation also launched its latest initiative, Innovating for People, Prosperity, and Liberty, setting the stage for a compelling exploration and presentation of the most powerful innovations and new technologies that transcend failing government programs and alleviate poverty by opening opportunities for upward mobility around the world.
