Human Freedom

Spotlighting supporters of democratic movements and freedom, the universal human desire that is essential for lasting peace and prosperity worldwide

President and Mrs. Bush believe that freedom is a universal human right, and that freedom is essential to lasting peace and prosperity.  Extending the reach of freedom around the world helps secure the benefits of freedom for generations to come in the United States.  The Bush Institute’s Human Freedom initiative advances freedom by developing leaders in emerging democracies, standing with those who still live under tyranny, and fostering U.S. leadership through policy and action.
