Rights & Governance

CSF and WML’s Rights and Governance program area is dedicated to restoring and protecting the tenets articulated in the US Constitution.

We are especially focused on the areas of:

  • Dissent – Protecting and advancing the rights to free speech and assembly.
  • Open Government – Making the federal government more transparent, effective, and accountable.
  • Rule of Law – Ensuring that US national security policies respect constitutional rights, domestic laws, and international treaties.
  • The Constitution and the Courts – Building a progressive legal movement to counter conservative and corporate influence.

In the realm of international governance, CSF and WML have also long funded in the area of:

  • Trade – Making the rules of global commerce more democratic, just, and sustainable.
