Who We Are

Who we are:

The Heinrich Boell Foundation is a non-profit organization that is part of the global green movement. The foundation is based in Berlin, Germany, and has a network of over 30 offices around the world. It advances political and socioeconomic transformations through civic engagement and political dialogue.

The Washington, DC office, in line with the foundation’s guiding principles and values, works to strengthen civil liberties, human rights, and democratic institutions. We promote gender equality, social justice, and equity. We strive to preserve a habitable planet for current and future generations.

As an independent 501(c)(3) organization, we run global and transatlantic dialogue programs. We work to shape multilateral processes and the norms that govern them, and to strengthen the relationship between the United States and Europe.

We foster these goals through a diversity of projects such as public seminars, fellowships, study tours, and publications.

As a 501(c)(3) organization based in Washington, DC, we promote policy reform and political dialogue in our program areas through publications, public seminars, conferences, workshops, study tours and visitor programs. We seek to advance democracy and human rights, protect the environment and climate, and promote the peaceful resolution of conflicts. We also place particular emphasis on gender democracy, meaning social emancipation and equal rights for women and LGBTI communities.
