About Free & Equal
Our MissionAs a 501(c)(3) non-profit, non-partisan organization, the Free and Equal Election Foundation's mission is to broaden electoral choices through education and direct positive action. We work to give all ballot-qualified candidates the opportunity to debate important political issues in public forums. We want to help level the political playing field and to inspire more independents and alternative party candidates to run for office. We want to empower and encourage more people, especially young people, to get involved in the discussion, participate in the political process and hold their government accountable. We believe that "more voices, more choices" will help shift the political power back to the people, away from the control of a few corporations and political elites, creating a more balanced system where all are free and equal in their ability to participate. Free and Equal Elections Foundation was founded in 2008 by Christina Tobin, an American activist and leader in the election reform and voters' rights movements. Free and Equal hosted the 2012 Third Party Presidential Debate which was aired by various news outlets including C-SPAN and Al Jazeera. The event trended top ten on Twitter and was moderated by Larry King.
