Our Leadership | Freedom House

Freedom House is led by David J. Kramer, the organization's president. The daily work of the organization is conducted by its approximately 150 staff members in Washington, New York, and field offices around the world.

The organization's Board of Trustees, which includes Democrats, Republicans and Independents, is composed of a mix of business and labor leaders, former senior government officials, scholars and journalists who agree that the promotion of democracy and human rights abroad is vital to America's interests abroad and to international peace.
