about people for liberty

People for Liberty launched in May of 2020 in response to an unmet need and has developed into an exciting mixing ground for people, ideas, and candidates exploring the values of the liberty movement. Whether it be through our official non-profit organization or the political action committee, People for Liberty is dedicated to creating a warm and welcoming community for those seeking life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness with as little government interference as possible. If you seek the same, we hope you’ll explore if our values align with your own.

We invite you to become a member of People for Liberty, sign up for our newsletter, and check out an upcoming event. No matter how you choose to get involved, we welcome all the support you can muster, and we’ll pay that support forward to the movement with the goal of bringing liberty not just to our members but to all Americans.

What We Do

People for Liberty is a collective of liberty-minded people, by the people, and for the people, working towards a common goal.

We are focused on empowering people through education and advocacy to take action in the political process, build an engaged community, and contribute to a diverse, inclusive, and welcoming culture that invites others to become a part of the liberty movement.

Leadership Group

Jo Jorgensen

On the heels of a 2020 election cycle, where Dr. Jo Jorgensen was one of only three candidates to be on the ballot in all 50 states + DC, Jo has become the President of the Board for People For Liberty. A transcendent figure in American Politics, Dr Jorgensen is the only Ph. D and the only woman to have ever been on the ballot in 50+DC twice. Dr. Jorgensen brings a deep understanding of the cultural implications of a free society, as well as group of supporters who came to the Liberty movement because of the efficacy of her message and the way she was able to make people understand liberty on their own personal level.

Jo Jorgensen possesses the intellectual firepower and academic credentials to contend with tough opposition. She’s been a full-time Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Clemson University since 2006 and holds a Ph.D. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology (Clemson, 2002). She graduated in 1979 from Baylor University with a B.S. in Psychology and in 1980 from Southern Methodist University with an MBA.

Lauren Postler

Although new to the liberty movement, as a serial social entrepreneur Lauren has been building both nonprofit and for-profit organizations from the ground up for almost 15 years. A former social worker turned tech startup founder and venture capitalist, she has been heralded as a visionary founder and award-winning agent of social change. Her previous involvement in fundraising with leaders in the oil & gas industry and background as a social worker has lent itself to both a “grass-roots” and “big picture” approach helping consulting clients build their brands and raise capital to fuel their cause. This experience has made her an in-demand academic instructor, consultant, and fundraiser for disruptive startups, especially those innovating in the media technology space.

As the Founder, she is dedicated to helping People for Liberty launch, grow and scale in order to be a true force for social good and a light for all seeking a home in the liberty movement. 

Dan Fishman

A well-respected and long-time leader in the liberty movement, Dan Fishman most recently served as the Executive Director of the Libertarian Party before taking on the title and role with People for Liberty. During his tenure, the party benefited from an over 50% increase in Membership from August 2019 through January of 2021. He deftly pivoted the organization during the coronavirus pandemic to lead the first-ever online Presidential Nominating convention in May of 2020 as well as the online portion of the LNC’s hybrid convention in July of 2021. With a keen eye towards making the party more accessible to more people, he also led the charge to launch innovative programs including LPTV, Member Welcome Hangout, and the affiliate referral program.

Today, he hopes to further broaden the reach of the liberty message and movement by creating a welcoming, diverse, and inclusive culture with People for Liberty that offers open arms and support to those seeking a world set free in our lifetime.

Holly F. Ward

Holly F. Ward has spent the last 15 years dedicating her life to clear and transparent government practice. After serving on Active Duty in the Air Force for 12 years, to include 3 deployments to the Middle East, she honorably separated to pursue advancing the principles of clear and civil politics as the Vice President of the Board of People for Liberty. Although she has the heart of a public servant, Holly believes she can best serve the public by working outside the government. She has continued to author policy, lead communication for large-scale programs, and advocate for individual liberty on a local and national level. Her focuses are putting people first and getting to work by taking action. Holly has organized hundreds of events focused on improving the lives of the public.

When she’s not at work with People for Liberty, Holly shares her passion for baseball with her family and is working on her PhD in Public Administration and Public Affairs at Virginia Tech.

People for Liberty | How We Do It

The Liberty Movement lacks organizations focused specifically on building community — until now. Without community engagement, how do we know what messages resonate? How does the movement learn from the people and empower them to lead?

Through conversation, collaboration and content creation, People for Liberty will help identify future liberty voters and deliver them curated, data-driven messaging designed to engage and convert. We seek to partner with existing organizations in the liberty movement to expand their audience reach and connect new voters with their message.

People for Liberty | Political Action Committee

Our goal is to set the stage for marketing & advertising success with our 501(c)4 nonprofit and through online engagement in our online hub. Creating these connections with people will build an audience and create a path and process for ongoing marketing research. Ultimately this will provide a pipeline for sharing curated content through an army of brand advocates and social influencers.

The future of Super PACs will include collecting and deploying user-generated content and influencer strategies. As the reliance on the mainstream media decreases, especially among liberty-minded individuals, People for Liberty is positioned to be at the forefront of the ‘new wave’.  We are focused on anticipating and creating the future instead of desperately trying to play catch-up.
