Government Abuse Hits “Home.”
The Freedom Center of Missouri (FCMo) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to research and constitutional litigation in five key areas: freedom of expression, economic liberty (the right to earn a living), property rights, religious liberties, and limited government.
David Roland’s work has been discussed in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and other major newspapers nationwide; he has traveled widely in the state of Missouri, arguing before the state supreme court, speaking to elected officials, student groups at colleges and law schools, Federalist Society chapters, and community groups about education, property rights, health care reform, constitutional protections for liberty, and the American Founders’ conception of virtue.
Roland: “The Freedom Center’s goal is to use our cases, research, and commentary to demonstrate, both in the court of law and the court of public opinion, the governmental abuses that occur when judges and legislators fail to respect constitutional freedoms. By helping people cultivate a newfound appreciation for their liberties, we believe that Missouri can experience a rebirth of freedom for all of its citizens.”
