Truth. Justice. Memory.
The Berlin Wall fell in 1989, but communism didn’t. One hundred years after the Bolshevik Revolution, one fifth of the world’s population still lives under single-party communist regimes in China, Cuba, Laos, North Korea, and Vietnam.
From the famines, purges, and gulags of Soviet Union to Mao’s Great Leap Forward and the Killing Fields of the Khmer Rouge, communists have killed more than 100 million people over the past century. Countless more suffer still. We tell the stories of these brave men and women. We honor those who resisted, and those who still resist. Learn More →
We bring Chinese, Cambodian, Vietnamese, Venezuelan, Cuban, and North Korean dissidents and activists to advocate on Capitol Hill and launch public petitions that call on lawmakers and media to condemn civil and human rights abuses carried out by communist dictatorships. Join the fight.
We train dozens of high school teachers, maintain an extensive college student network, and recently launched a new animated video series. Our programs help foster an intelligent and self-reliant citizenry. Help our events, publications, and digital media reach tens of thousands more.
Our academic programs equip teachers and students to instruct a new generation about the ideology, history, and legacy of communism.
Dedicated to change.
This year, “living in truth” required us to condemn foreign governments, U.S. educational institutions, and publishing houses for historical revisionism. They are whitewashing the brutal record of communist party rule in some 40 countries and obscuring the many atrocities committed in the name of the world’s deadliest ideology: communism.
Telling the truth about communism meant confronting policies and statements of leading U.S. politicians, both Republican and Democrat. It meant calling out major media companies for spreading propaganda as news or refusing to mention the persecuted subjects of communist party-states today in China, Cuba, Laos, North Korea, and Vietnam.
