Promoting Freedom Through Education
Since 1991

For over 25 years, Freedom Seminars has brought speakers who champion the cause of freedom and liberty to the Pacific Northwest.

Individual Liberty: Where It Began; Where It's Headed

Freedom Seminars extends its appreciation to Dr. Tom G. Palmer for his enlightening presentation to an enthusiastic audience of freedom-lovers attending the November 16, 2019 dinner in Portland. Tom outlined the ancient origins of individual liberty and gave a fascinating history of its evolution, wrapping up with an explanation of populism's threat to the future of individual freedom.

We thank those who attended and look forward to our 2020 event.
Details will be available on our website when arrangements have been finalized.
