Our Issues

We help people use the initiative process to increase liberty in their communities. Municipal initiatives offer a unique opportunity to offer principled common sense legislation directly to voters. Often the signature requirements are low enough to keep expenses minimal yet using the process can be a challenge for the inexperienced. Liberty Initiative Fund has been working directly with the municipal initiative past two years. We’re now seeking opportunities at the municipal level to further these issues:
