Whether you are a Freemason or not, welcome to the site of Liberty3, a Masonic Lodge of the George Washington Union (GWU), a North-American Obedience practicing the traditional liberal Freemasonry. Liberty3 (Lodge Liberty no. 3) was established in Washington D.C. on November 30, 1996, and was the first mixed gender Masonic Lodge in the area operating in an Obedience following the principles of Adogmatic Freemasonry. Liberty3 is open to men and women of all races and beliefs. It advocates tolerance and absolute freedom of conscience.


What is Freemasonry?

Freemasonry is an initiatory society working for the progress of humanity by striving to improve oneself. Freemasonry proclaims absolute freedom of conscience and unlimited freedom in the search for truth. It is a philosophy or a way of life emphasizing fraternity, charity, and the search for truth. Freemasonry gathers together men and women of all nationalities, races, ethnicities, and creeds, who are not dogmatically bound to any specific religious belief or philosophical view. To help members better fashion the “stone of self” within the one Temple of humanity, Freemasonry prescribes a symbolic, allegorical and ritualistic method seeking to overcome ignorance, intolerance, and prejudice in any form; and to replace them with knowledge, wisdom, and service to the planet. Freemasonry encourages a mutual respect for differences. It should be emphasized that no individual or group “speaks” for Freemasonry.

The motto of progressive, liberal and traditional Freemasonry, since the XIXth century is:


 The additional motto of the George Washington Union is:




The George Washington Union welcomes individuals of good will and high values who are committed to a quest for spiritual progress—the "Know Thyself" of the philosopher Socrates—while working toward the progress of humanity.
