“Every 2 minutes someone is sexually assaulted in America.”
Fear 2 Freedom’s Freedom Dove unites the national colors, teal for sexual assault, purple for domestic violence, and orange for sex-trafficking. The chains symbolize the fear and bondage that occurs when abuse takes place. Freedom Dove soaring marks the freedom from fear, the chains and tears falling away.
Fear 2 Freedom is a global non-profit dedicated to redeem and restore the lives of those affected by sexual assault, bringing them hope and healing. Our goal is to raise awareness of sexual abuse, bring change through vigilance and healing through compassion. We are in the business of “restoring joy” to those who have been sexually assaulted, encouraging them on their own journey from fear to freedom.
What We Do:
Fear 2 Freedom partners universities, hospitals, and communities to assemble after-care “Fear 2 Freedom Kits” for those affected by rape, child abuse, domestic violence, and sex-trafficking. By raising the cultural understanding, students and members of the community are empowered to be a part of the solution and help make a tangible difference in the lives of those abused.
