It is a common misconception that freedom has a single definition. We encounter different types of freedom every single day. For example, you have the freedom to choose what you want to do with with your afternoon, and you have the freedom to petition the government. We must also consider how freedom differs around the world. Not everyone has the same rights as we do in the United States and often times an individuals freedom may be oppressed due to where they live. How do these different freedoms affect our lives?

This website explores our different paths of freedom and puts them into conversation with each other. Each tab will answer 3 simple questions.

1. Why is this path to freedom important?

2. Who is against this path to freedom?

3. What is gained by the everyday person through this freedom?

Through this website you will learn of few of the many paths to freedom and how they change lives around the world, empower individuals, and uphold the principles of democracy.
