About Us

Our mission and vision

“For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

Isaiah 9:6


The Frederick Douglass Foundation, Founded by Dr. Timothy F. Johnson, Rev. Dean Nelson and Mr. A.Troy Rollings, is a public policy and educational organization which brings the sanctity of free market and limited government ideas to bear on the hardest problems facing new approaches to today’s problems.


We are a collection of pro-active individuals, elected officials, pastors, scholars and community activist committed to developing innovative and new approaches to today’s issues.



Sharing the truth in love

To build bridges, network, and inspire action, citizens, clergy and public servants. We address and work with in the political system with honesty and integrity. We know there is no real political solution to the problems our country faces. You do not change people through politics, but you change politics through a change in people. Therefore, we will go out boldly with the values and principles we know work speaking the truth in love.

I have one great political idea… That idea is an old one. It is widely and generally assented to; nevertheless, it is very generally trampled upon and disregarded. The best expression of it, I have found in the Bible. It is in substance, “Righteousness exalteth a nation – sin is a reproach to any people.” This constitutes my politics, the negative and positive of my politics, and the whole of my politics… I feel it my duty to do all in my power to infuse this idea into the public mind, that it may speedily be recognized and practiced upon by our people. ~ Frederick Douglass

Members of the Frederick Douglass Foundation believe: We live in a land of liberty where natural rights of individuals precede and supersede the power of the state. We are a constitutional republic in which government power is limited and employed for the purpose of providing legitimate public goods rather than for the benefit of insiders and narrow interest groups.

We believe in the free market in which persons, individually or collectively, have the natural right to sell goods and services to willing buyers, and in which the individual pursuit of economic opportunity benefits all.

We are a free society where citizens solve social problems not only through government but also by working together in families, neighborhoods, churches, charities, and other private, voluntary organizations.
