About us

1828 is a neoliberal platform founded to champion freedom.

With the recent resurgence of socialist ideas on the left and social conservatism on the right, 1828 provides a platform for individuals to champion the alternative: economic and personal freedom.

We believe that all our lives have been positively changed by the spread of free-market capitalism, as well as social liberalism. Whether it’s the vast technological changes we have enjoyed, the life-changing advances in medicine, the global reduction in extreme poverty, or the advances in women’s and LGBT+ rights, we know that economic and social liberalism – giving individuals power over their own money and lives – is the path to a more prosperous, inclusive and accepting society.

And no generation has ever been as liberal-minded as young people today, so let’s embrace – and win – the battle of ideas.

If you would like to help us to continue championing freedom, you can donate here. All donations are greatly appreciated and make a big difference.
