What is the Allied Educational Foundation?

The Allied Educational Foundation (AEF) was founded in 1964 by labor leader George Barasch as an IRS Code 501(c)(3) charitable and educational foundation. AEF aims to empower Americans through education on topics such as civic responsibilities, understanding media bias, and health and welfare. The Foundation also advocates for legal reform by filing amicus briefs in state and federal courts in support of open government and the preservation of constitutional rights. By leveraging a series of strategic partnerships, AEF meets these objectives through its national Speakers Bureau, online lecture series, annual educational and health conferences, and legal advocacy.  The Foundation has presented at hundreds of high schools, colleges, and community organizations nationwide and its legal advocacy has resulted in a victory in over 150 cases.
