Grantees Freedom University

Freedom University is a modern-day freedom school based in Atlanta. We provide rigorous college preparation classes, college and scholarship application assistance, and leadership development for undocumented students in Georgia.

We believe that all human beings – regardless of race, ethnicity, class, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or citizenship status – have a right to education. We uphold Article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which states that everyone has the right to education and that higher education shall be equally accessible to all on the basis of merit.

We believe that human rights are universal, inalienable, and interdependent. Regardless of where people are born or what borders they may cross, human beings have rights by virtue of their humanity that can never be taken away. Because human rights are interdependent, we believe that are movements for human dignity are interdependent as well. As such, Freedom University partners with human rights organizations working to advance racial justice, gender equality, workers’ rights, indigenous rights, and freedom in all its forms.
