The Freedom Collection is a central feature of the Human Freedom initiative at the George W. Bush Institute. It is an active, living archive that documents the struggle for democracy and human freedom around the world through the personal stories of men and women who have led or participated in freedom movements. Using video interviews, artifacts, collected papers, and other materials, the Freedom Collection strives to inspire and provide insight to the current generations of freedom advocates, expanding access to information and successful strategies for change. It also reinforces for Americans and others living in free societies the moral and practical importance of supporting pro-democracy movements, remaining actively engaged in the world, and safeguarding our own foundations of liberty. The Freedom Collection can be accessed online through an interactive website,
