Is AFF Libertarian or Conservative?
Is AFF libertarian, conservative, or what? While AFF members self-identify as conservatives and libertarians, AFF is a fusionist organization – dedicated to the spirit of debate between conservatives and libertarians and the firm belief in free markets and economic freedom.
AFF hosts many unique and important debates between conservatives and libertarians, specifically asking what those terms mean, but also discussing the difference between libertarians and conservatives so attendees can decide how to identify themselves. Visit the events page to read about upcoming programs.
AFF events continue to focus on the values that conservatives and libertarians share and the issues on which they disagree. AFF has hosted debates and published articles in Doublethink on immigration, censorship and privacy, gay marriage, foreign policy, feminism, faith, and many other topics. We believe these debates animate the power of ideas.
AFF also works to maintain a balance of libertarians and conservatives among our staff, board, advisors, and executives. So whether you are conservative or libertarian, we are confident you will find friends at AFF who are as passionate about ideas as you are. Together we can identify that there are differences while also becoming more unified behind the ideas of free markets and economic freedom.
