Promoting and protecting
America’s democratic system.
Bradley supports organizations working to advance federalism and limit government at the national, state, and local levels. We recognize the increasing threats to our rights enshrined in the First Amendment and therefore support organizations that work to protect free speech and defend religious freedom. We also fund grantees working to support the rule of law and legal reform.
— Abraham Lincoln
