As the tenth anniversary of 9/11 approaches, IDEA is launching Securing Liberty - a high school debate initiative that offers students a unique opportunity to consider America's response to the terrorist attacks and their impact on our nation's commitment to its core values.
About Open Society Foundations
The Open Society Foundations work to build vibrant and tolerant democracies whose governments are accountable to their citizens. To achieve this mission, the foundations seek to shape public policies that assure greater fairness in political, legal, and economic systems and safeguard fundamental rights. On a local level, the Open Society Foundations implement a range of initiatives to advance justice, education, public health, and independent media. At the same time, we build alliances across borders and continents on issues such as corruption and freedom of information. The foundations place a high priority on protecting and improving the lives of people in marginalized communities.
