IJ is the National Law Firm for Liberty. Since 1991, IJ has come to the aid of ordinary people who want to do the simple things every American has the right to do—including own property, start and grow a business, speak freely about commerce or politics, and provide their children with a good education—but can’t because they find the government in their way.
With the help of our donors, IJ has litigated almost 300 cases, including eight cases before the Supreme Court, and represented more than 1,000 people in need—all at no cost to them. IJ combines cutting-edge legal strategies, award-winning media, and on-the-ground activism that helps us win over 70% of our cases. We’ve saved more than 20,000 homes and businesses from the government’s wrecking ball, returned more than $17 million in wrongfully seized property and cash, and made millions of educational choice scholarships available to children across the country.
IJ is an excellent steward of the resources entrusted to it by donors across the nation. That is why we’ve earned Charity Navigator’s top 4-star rating every year since 2001. IJ accepts no government funds and depends on the generosity of people like you. Make a tax-deductible donation today!
