What We Do

The Bill of Rights Institute engages, educates, and empowers individuals with a passion for the freedom and opportunity that exist in a free society.

The Institute envisions a society in which all individuals enjoy life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It is a society in which:


  • Students engage with and champion these rights for themselves and others.
  • Teachers educate students to seek knowledge and tackle challenges with these rights in mind.
  • Parents empower their children to apply these rights in their own lives through interaction, example, and dialogue.

- Razi Lane, 2014 Constitutional Academy Alumni
