Our Team

"Independence Foundation continues to assemble a remarkable group of leaders in both staff and board positions.  I have no idea how they do this so consistently, but they maintain a rotating group of hardworking, thoughtful and inspirational people working with and for the foundation.  I have been personally and professionally inspired by so many of the people in the Independence Foundation family.  Many of them have influenced my personal approach to the law and justice."
