WHO WE ARE

The Institute for Liberal Values (ILV) is a group of individuals and partner organizations who have faced or are fighting illiberalism in a variety of forms (from the right, left, top, bottom and everywhere in between), and have since committed to a collaboration that provides the tools to build and strengthen liberal values, promoting democratic, diverse, and pluralistic societies across the world.

OUR MISSION

As a non-partisan and non-sectarian consortium focused on the promotion of individual freedom, rights, and liberty in everyday life, the Institute for Liberal Values (ILV) provides the skills and support required to build community where there has been division, encourage free expression where there has been censorship, and foster optimism where there is fear.

WHAT WE DO

The Institute for Liberal Values (ILV) creates tools and resources that educate about liberal values. In addition to our podcasts, essays, and toolkits you can access on the site, our offerings include:

A Liberal Concepts Glossary, and a monthly highlight of a particular concept providing relevant lessons on it via essays, podcasts, and references to it in practice today.

A monthly Liberal Values Lab, where professionals from their field discuss the application of liberalism (or lack thereof) in a specific context, opening the floor to a community conversation.

A monthly Liberalism in Practice panel discussion with ILV members and partners on the application of liberalism relative to a current event, with community Q&A and conversation.

Together with Free Black Thought, we have created the Black Institute for Liberal Values, to provide educational resources and curricula to promote “empowered education” in the place of “prescriptive” dogmatic approaches that center the BLM in Schools agenda.

Through our partner, Solid Ground, we provide individual and small group resources helping people navigate the divisive impacts of oppressive ideologies.

We work closely with the Coalition for Empowered Education, building a multiethnic coalition of parents, educators and concerned citizens who oppose dogmatic, politicized agendas in K-12 education. Specifically, we support pluralistic ethnic studies that counters the spread of radical ideologies.
