To support healing connection and restorative communities both inside and outside prison through the strategies of Nonviolent Communication, mindfulness, racial equity and anti-oppression.
Together we shift from punishment to restoration, from oppression to equity, and from apathy to empathy.
Freedom Project seeks to partner with individuals and communities to identify and remove barriers to these values.
Accountability We take responsibility for our impact regardless of our intention and seek to be transparent with ourselves and the community.
Connection Freedom Project embraces authentic relationships, with self and with others, being mindful of the impact we carry from society and systems of oppression.
Empathy Through connecting with the essential humanity and value within ourselves and others, Freedom Project believes in the power of empathy as a healing force.
Equity We value community in which the quality of life, access to resources, and levels of acceptance and contribution are no longer determined by our labels and identities – such as race, class, gender, sexual orientation, faith, or whether or not we have been incarcerated.
