From their web site:
Founded in 1991, the Institute for Justice is what a civil liberties law firm should be. As our nation's only libertarian public interest law firm, we pursue cutting-edge litigation in the courts of law and in the court of public opinion on behalf of individuals whose most basic rights are denied by the government--like the right to earn an honest living, private property rights, and the right to free speech, especially in the areas of commercial and Internet speech. As Wired magazine said, the Institute for Justice “helps individuals subject to wacky government regulations.”
A few years ago I started a regular charitable contribution program, and IJ has been receiving my donations every year. They are a fantastic organization that, ironically, helped out a business in my home city! (I donated to them before I knew about the Ballen case.) They are dedicated, smart, communicate well with their donors and the public at large, and most importantly, they work hard.
If you seek a worthy recipient of your charitable dollars, IJ is well worth it.
