This is some text inside of a div block.

Inspired by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Four Freedoms, we designed an interactive project that has been used by thousands of people in hundreds of communities and institutions across the country to expand upon FDR's Four Freedoms. We invite participants to write and display their own definitions of freedom by filling out signs that say

• Freedom Of ____
• Freedom From _____
• Freedom For ______
• Freedom To______

The Four Freedoms outlined by FDR and Norman Rockwell began to articulate the human right to freedom, but the articulation of those freedoms was not complete and did not apply to everyone. Our lawn signs allow every participant in their own way to articulate a vision of freedom that contains multitudes.
