FREEDOM WEST 2.0 PARTNERS & SUPPORTERS

– Freedom West Partners Convening, February 22, 2022.
In February 2022, we held the inaugural Freedom West 2.0 Partners Convening to share our vision and what had been accomplished to date. We invited the stakeholders gathered to join us as we move forward to help make the Freedom West 2.0 vision a model for the country.
During the event held at the Battery in San Francisco, we announced the Founders Circle, with financial commitments from MacFarlane Partners, Avanath Capital, JP Morgan Chase, Freedom West Homes, Bethel AME Church, and Low-Income Investment Fund (LIIF).
