What is the Faces of Freedom Exhibit?
The Faces of Freedom exhibit has two goals:
Raise awareness on the issue of slavery and oppression
Raise funds for our partners to fight slavery and oppression
We invite visitors to follow survivors’ real life journeys from oppression to rescue, restoration, and ultimately freedom. The paintings, each crafted by a critically-acclaimed artist, give viewers a chance to enter into a victim’s experience, reflect on their own stories of injustice, and inspire action.
A brief explanation of the survivor’s story accompanies each portrait. Visitors are encouraged to consider a series of questions as they progress through the exhibit and learn practical ways to join the fight against oppression. Faces of Freedom is designed to travel to schools, universities, libraries, churches, galleries, airports, hospitals and other civic venues.
