The mission of the Freedom Forum is to provide undergraduate students leadership and development opportunities to build skills, such as project management, while producing events exploring economic freedom as a source of well-being. Our programs are impactful experiences studying the theories and applications for economic freedom. The Freedom Forum of North Park University affirms private individuals and free enterprises engaging in the pursuit of mutual benefits.

Our Vision

The vision of the Freedom Forum is to be North Park's premiere leadership program for young professionals 

     The natural right of both employee and employer to enter into (or dissolve) agreements free of uninvited intervention.

     The Freedom Forum's mentorship program, and out visits to Microsoft and Amazon in Seattle, encourages students to critically think about their professional choices and opportunities.

     Also, research shows a positive relationship between free labor choice and happiness!

Freedom of

Choice in Labor

Freedom from Excessive Taxation

     In classical liberalism, governing body is assigned a role, but required to conclusively demonstrate a necessary claim to income. Any reduction in wages should be minimal and respect an individual's rights to earned income. 

     At local discussion events, and out trip to Washington D.C, the Freedom Forum debates extensively the concept of appropriate taxation

Freedom of Thought & Expression

     The natural born right to hold and share an opinion without fear of government reprisal. If a person is not free to hold their own opinions, and debate them, then civil discourse and positive social change are not possible. 

     Freedom Forum events, such as free speech zones in Silicon Valley, embrace freedom of thought and expression.

     We recognize regulation in enforcing fair-play, but excessive regulation imposes externalities which interrupt the voluntary interactions of a free market. Interference into our lives should be nominal, allowing free choice to flourish. 

     We explore harmful regulations at the Liberty Forum and Freedom dinner in New York City.
