Freedom Ride Project Partners are organizations who actively partner with the Freedom Ride Project and make a unique contribution to the advancement of our mission to raise awareness and empower communities to address human trafficking at a grass roots level.
Please learn about our Partners below and contact us at info@FreedomAmbassador.BIKE if you are interested in partnering with us.
We are proud to partner with Vanguard University’s Global Center for and Justice (GCW) who’s mission is driven by research, education, advocacy and collaboration. GCWJ is committed to Study the Issues. Be a Voice. And Make a Difference as it prepares students and communities to combat social justice issues like human trafficking. GCWJ is hosting our 2019 Community Celebration Event for graduating Freedom Ambassadors as the closing ceremony of their annual Ensure Justice Conference. The center’s Director, Dr. Sandie Morgan, is an integral part of our Freedom Ambassador Program and serves as a key advisor on issue such as education of youth and successful integration of community.
We are honored to partner with Live2Free, a student mobilization club at Vanguard University that raises awareness about human trafficking with youth on and off campus. Live2Free students challenge youth to make personal choices that recognize the dignity of the individual and the responsibility of consumers to slow the demand that drives modern day slavery. An integral part of our Freedom Ambassador Program, these college students provide peer-to-peer education and coaching to our Freedom Ambassadors at local high schools. They focus on developing personal relationships with the students, building their leadership skills and self-confidence, and empowering them with critical knowledge about human trafficking to take on projects that significantly impact their communities.
The mission of Project Kinship is to provide support and training to lives impacted by incarceration, gangs, and violence through hope, healing, and transformation. Project Kinship has a strong relationship with several schools in Orange County through its’ onsite education and counseling services. They have embraced the Freedom Ambassador Program as part of their leadership curriculum at Valley High School. It is a true delight to experience the impact of Project Kinship staff and Live2Free students, as they work side by side to inspire and empower these high school students to address human trafficking in their own schools and communities.
