CIR needs your help to preserve our liberty
e are a nonprofit public interest law firm dedicated to the defense of individual liberties against the increasingly unchecked authority of federal and state governments. CIR seeks to enforce constitutional limits on state and federal power as a means to expanding the civil liberties of individuals.
We are not a legal services firm nor a public policy institute. Rather, we aggressively litigate and publicize a handful of carefully selected cases that offer the best chance to set lasting legal precedents. Each legal victory expands the right of individuals to govern themselves according to the natural exercise of their own reason.
Our cases challenge unconstitutional state action that is increasingly characteristic of the modern state. We make no apologies for bringing only those cases that overtly advance this agenda. Our opponents have enormous financial resources and the weight of the establishment on their side, but every contribution to CIR helps keep liberty alive in the courts.
Every financial and pro bono contribution helps produce historic legal victories to advance individual rights.
Bang for your buck!
