About Us

The Heinrich Boll Foundation is a political foundation affiliated with, but independent of, the German Green Party. 

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.
