Letters & Statements

The Institute for Justice acts as a watchdog against abuses of government power, keeping an eye out for policies that infringe on individuals’ civil liberties. When we identify practices that raise concerns, like excessive fines and fees or unfair licensing restrictions, we don’t hold back. IJ sends letters and public statements warning officials of their legally dubious or unconstitutional actions, highlighting the problematic aspects of their policies, and oftentimes offering solutions to the situation. These communications serve as a clear warning: if the government doesn’t address its policies, IJ might take further action, which could include litigation or public campaigns to hold the public officials accountable.
