Who Are We?
Established in September 1999, the Bill of Rights Institute is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization that works to engage, educate, and empower individuals with a passion for the freedom and opportunity that exist in a free society. The Institute develops educational resources and programs for a network of more than 50,000 educators and 70,000 students nationwide.
Through the Bill of Rights Institute I have been able to learn new skills, obtain vast knowledge, travel to the site of historical events, discuss history with scholars, and acquire quality teaching materials to use in my classroom.
I have learned so much about individual and economic freedom. Perhaps more importantly, I learned why it is critical to maintain them. Our Constitution is a gift from our Founders that resonates with modern society far more than many may realize.
The lessons and resources I received from the Bill of Rights Institute will immediately be integrated into my classroom. My students already love Bill of Rights Institute lessons because they are interactive and thought-provoking.
