Freedom, Inc. engages low- to no-income communities of color in Dane County, WI. We work to end violence against people of color, women, those that non-traditionally gender identify, youth, and our elders, to promote a healthy lifestyle. We create healthy communities by campaigning against the root causes of violence, creating our own definitions of identity and resiliency, and empowering all community members as agents of change. Our vision is to inspire and restore power to those most affected by violence through leadership development and focusing on community. All of our efforts are specific with regard to language, gender, generation and culture, so that we can ultimately produce lasting forms of social, political, cultural, and economic change.
