Freedom from ignorance through education & advocacy
Freeset USA believes a key piece of bringing freedom to communities is through offering education.

Another way Freeset USA fights for freedom from ignorance is by advocating to fellow Americans about the harsh realities of poverty and the oppression of human trafficking.
