It has a proven track record of working with LGBT populations. Freedom House’s mission is to uphold a fundamental American principle, one inscribed on the base of the Statue of Liberty: To provide safety for those “yearning to breathe free.” In 2012, it became a formal partner in the Northern Tier Anti-Trafficking Consortium servicing victims of human trafficking.
