Freedom, Inc. (FI)

Madison, WI

Freedom, Inc. has engaged low income communities of color in Dane County, WI since 2003, working to end violence against people of color, women, those that non-traditionally gender identify, youth, and elders, to promote a healthy lifestyle. 

“Our mission is to achieve social justice through coupling direct services with leadership development and community organizing that will bring about social, political, cultural, and economic change resulting in the end of violence against women, gender-non-conforming and transgender folks, and children within communities of color. FI works to challenge the root causes of violence, poverty, racism and discrimination. Our belief is that people who are most affected by these issues must have voice, power, resources and choice, in order for true social change to happen.”
