Justin Amash served in the U.S. House of Representatives from January 2011 to January 2021. After joining the Libertarian Party in early 2020, he became the highest-ranking Libertarian Party officeholder in the country. As an elected official, Rep. Amash was a leading advocate of government restraint and a champion of civil liberties, having led opposition to warrantless surveillance, indefinite detention, civil asset forfeiture, qualified immunity, and other government policies and practices that violate our constitutionally secured rights. During his time in office, Rep. Amash came to be particularly concerned by the harms of power centralization in Congress and increasing partisanship, and since leaving office he has been exploring ways to combat these trends. His current focus is on growing and strengthening the Libertarian Party and expanding liberty through activism. You can hear him regularly on The Justin Amash Podcast, where he hosts long-form conversations with people from all walks of life.
