he Freedom Collection is a permanent archive of the struggle for human freedom and democracy around the world. Established by President Bush on November 12, 2009, the Freedom Collection works to extend the reach of human liberty around the world by promoting democracy, political freedom, and individual rights. 

The Freedom Collection pursues the principles of human liberty by documenting the personal stories of men and women who have led or participated in freedom movements. Using video interviews, collected papers and other materials, the Freedom Collection strives to inspire and provide insight to the current generation of freedom advocates, and expands access to information and successful strategies for change. The Freedom Collection reinforces the moral and practical importance of supporting pro-democracy movements and remaining actively engaged in the world. It also preserves history as a tool for scholars, policy makers and students studying democratic movements.
