The Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) is a non-partisan policy institute dedicated to promoting pluralism, defending democratic values, and fighting the ideologies that drive terrorism.
Those affiliated with FDD come from many backgrounds and political perspectives, but all believe:
No one should be denied basic human rights, including minority rights, women’s rights, and religious freedom.
Free and democratic nations have a right to defend themselves and an obligation to defend one another.
Terrorism, the deliberate use of violence against civilians to achieve political objectives, is always wrong and must never be condoned.
