What we're about

Are you concerned that we're losing our civil liberties? That the authorities are not respecting people's basic human rights? Are you sick of high taxes and fees and out-of-control government spending?

The Libertarian Party, the leading alternative political party in the United States, is based on a live-and-let-live approach to public policy that combines the tolerant social values of the left and the fiscally responsible values of the right.

We believe that you should be able to do what you want with your own time, money, body and property, so long as you do not initiate force or fraud against others.

This Meetup is here to help you meet other Libertarians and freedom lovers in the San Francisco area and provide opportunities to work together to help make San Francisco – and the world – a freer place!

Thank you for checking us out, and we look forward to meeting you!
