Legal Insurrection Foundation – Who We Are

Legal Insurrection Foundation (LIF) is one of the leading free speech investigative and media organizations in the country. We research and report on the most important issues facing our country, whether on school campuses, universities, businesses, or government. We also advocate for and walk alongside individuals who are at the epicenter of free speech attacks, shining light on attempts to cancel dissidents.

In early 2021, we launched the website, Critical Race Training In Education (CriticalRace.org), with one-of-a-kind interactive maps and databases of CRT in colleges and universities, medical schools, military service academies, and elite K-12 private schools. The website is the most comprehensive tool available on the subject and has been covered by nearly 100 media outlets. More importantly, there have been over seven million user actions on the website: proof that CriticalRace.org has become an essential tool for parents, students, alumni, and others concerned with the spread of Critical Race-related educational mandates. 

The Equal Protection Project (EPP) is a project of the Legal Insurrection Foundation (LIF), was launched in February of 2023. EPP is devoted to the fair treatment of all persons without regard to race or ethnicity. Our guiding principle is that there is no ‘good’ form of racism. The remedy for racism never is more racism. We have filed numerous complaints against entities who openly discriminate against individuals based on race and ethnicity. Our work here has only just begun.

LIF is now recognized as a leader in the parents’ rights movement and has lectured hundreds of state legislators on the problems in education from “woke” indoctrination, and what they can do about it. We are frequent speakers at conferences and in the media on how the harm inflicted through radical ideologies is a threat not only to our students, but to our nation, turning young people against both their parents and their country. We continue to provide informative and educational programming on a variety of topics related to campus free speech, academic freedom, and education.

We have a dedicated audience of readers who welcome our reporting as a counterforce to the bias of mainstream media. Today, the LIF blog brings in an average of 500,000 unique readers and over 1.8 million page views every single month. Our flagship blog is widely recognized as one of the leading conservative free speech websites, and is linked to and cited by other national media outlets daily.

LIF has a fourteen-year history of exposing free speech opponents’ attempts to reshape our country – and then of keeping the pressure on, covering stories the mainstream media won’t. Our relentless pursuit of the truth gives news organizations, elected officials, and activists the ammunition to stop harmful plans in their tracks.
