Welcome to the Heinrich Böll Foundation North America!
The Heinrich Böll Foundation North America is the Washington, DC office of the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung, a political foundation affiliated with the German Green Party. The foundation acts as a catalyst for green visions and projects, a think tank for policy reform, and an international network. We seek to advance democracy and human rights, protect the environment and climate, and promote the peaceful resolution of conflicts. We place particular emphasis on gender democracy, meaning social emancipation and equal rights for women and LGBTI communities. As a 501(c)(3) organization, the Heinrich Böll Foundation North America promotes policy reform and political dialogue in our program areas through publications, public seminars, conferences, workshops, study tours and visitor programs.
