Lecture by Executive Director, Dr. Laura Emiko Soltis
Panel with Freedom University undocumented student leaders

Based in Atlanta, Freedom University is inspired by the legacy of the Southern freedom school tradition. Freedom U. provides a tuition – free education, college application and scholarship assistance, and social movement leadership training to undocumented students banned from public higher education in Georgia. The mission of Freedom University is β€œto empower undocumented youth and fulfill their human right to education.” Freedom U. was founded as a response to Georgia’s Board of Regents banning undocumented students from admission to the state’s top five public universities in 2010. Dr. Laura Emiko Soltis is the Executive Director of Freedom University and Professor of Human Rights.
