Freedom House Detroit is a temporary home for indigent survivors of persecution from around the world who are seeking asylum in the United States and Canada. Their mission is to uphold a fundamental American principle, one inscribed on the base of the Statue of Liberty, providing safety for those “yearning to breathe free.” 

ACCESS’ Campaign to TAKE ON HATE, which officially launched in 2014, is a multi-year, grassroots campaign that challenges the growing discrimination and persistent misconception of Arab and Muslim Americans, including refugees of Arab and Muslim descent, in the U.S. It also inspires a positive perception of Arab and Muslim Americans (including Arab and Muslim refugees), creates systematic policy changes at the national and local levels and builds greater capacity for this community as a whole.
