The Institute for Free Speech (IFS), formerly the Center for Competitive Politics, is a nonpartisan organization that promotes and defends the First Amendment rights to freely speak, assemble, publish, and petition the government. The Institute is the nation’s largest organization dedicated solely to protecting First Amendment political rights. IFS has played a key role in every major pro-political free speech case decided by the Supreme Court since 2006.
