Join the Freedom Center Mar. 6 as we honor Kerry and Annie Hilton, founders of Freeset Global, as Everyday Freedom Heroes. Operating out of Kolkata, India in the neighborhood that houses India’s largest red-light district, Freeset has provided alternative employment and economic freedom to hundreds of women trapped in India’s notorious sex trade through the sales of export-quality bags and apparel.
After watching the film, Twelve Years A Slave, my colleague, Rich Cooper, and I were reeling with emotions. Chiwetel Ejiofor’s performance as Solomon Northup gave us goosebumps – not to mention the performances by Michael Fassbender and Lupita Nyong’o. Everyone I talked to was processing the film days later, and we realized how important it was to work through the emotions this film rattled inside of us.
