What We Do

The Freedom Center for Social Justice is committed to the growth, safety and empowerment of the LGBTQ community. Our mission is accomplished through education, programs, partnerships, and advocacy. We serve with care, compassion and celebration. Our vision is a world where equal protections and opportunities exist for all. -We believe each person is capable of making significant, lasting change in the lives of people around them. As such, we empower people to be effective leaders in culture-shift, the process of changing culture (the outlook, attitudes, values, morals, goals, and customs shared by a society) away from oppression and towards liberation. -We collaborate with other social-justice organizations to advance the cause of justice, equality and protections for LGBTQ people and the marginalized, centering those who are BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, or People of Color), elder, and/or youth. We envision a world in which all people are able to reach their full potential as human beings, regardless of their varied identities. -We celebrate the fullness of our humanity by working intentionally at the intersections of race, sexual orientation, gender identity, faith, age and class.
