The mission of the Freedom Center for Social Justice is to ensure the growth, safety, and empowerment of the LGBTQ community. This mission is accomplished through three core actions: Educate, Advocate, and Celebrate.
The Freedom Center for Social Justice was founded in 2009. As a Southern-based national organization, the founders see all too often how the poor, people of color, immigrant communities and sexual minorities are excluded and marginalized. It is committed to providing essential support and advocacy for trans people, elders, people of color, youth, sexual minorities and communities of faith and facilitating the necessary dialogue that opens doors, offers hope, raises awareness and save lives.
The Freedom Center for Social Justice launched the Southeastern region’s first LGBTQ Law Center and Transgender Employment Program. Since August of 2013, these programs have touched hundreds within the Carolinas and promise to continually grow as the current critical needs are met and subsequent deficiencies identified.
