“Freedom House Detroit is brave, just, and committed. It offers a safe, welcoming and healing space to those who have risked their lives for justice — and stands beside them as they address their legal, physical, psycho-social, and employment needs. It is incomparable and needed more everyday.”

Frank Mugisha
Executive Director, Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG)

“First of all, I like the work of Freedom House because I have traveled around quite, quite a lot, and I think it’s extraordinary what I’ve seen. They do this for especially people who are vulnerable, people who need support in countries that are not their own. So it’s very remarkable.”

Susan Reed
Managing Attorney, Michigan Immigrant Rights Center

“What Freedom House does meets a critical need in the state and the nation both in terms of the services they provide and the spirit they represent. At a time in our history when America’s promise to so many is being broken, Freedom House is working hard to keep it. Thank you, Freedom House!”
