Atlantic Legal Foundation believes in, and advocates for, individual liberty in all of its forms. This includes the traditional freedoms of speech, religion, and association. But as some States’ Covid-19 pandemic lockdowns made clear, individual liberty also encompasses rights that most Americans long have taken for granted, such as the freedom to move from State to State or place to place, the freedom to assemble for worship or to gather with family, and the freedom to conduct and patronize businesses of all types and sizes.
With social media providing a platform to anyone who wishes to share their opinions on almost any subject, individual liberty also gives new meaning to freedom of the press, including the right not to be “cancelled” for expressing a different or unpopular point of view. And individual liberty also means the right to peaceably protest, without fear or sanction, actions taken by federal, state or local government officials.
