The Freedom of Thought Project

Welcome to the Freedom of Thought Project, an initiative of the Federalist Society. In response to the increasing cultural polarity dominating public discourse, the Freedom of Thought Project seeks to tackle the controversial questions of the day with an eye to creating conversations that shape and restructure current legal and political debates. Articles, debates, and other relevant items will periodically be collected and added to this webpage to enable our users to think about questions involving freedom of thought. We hope this page proves a helpful resource and we welcome you to the conversation.

The Freedom of Thought Project, an initiative of the Federalist Society, looks forward to exploring these challenges to freedom of thought, giving all perspectives a fair and level platform, and letting facts and ideas speak for themselves.
