Freedom Fest 2022 is back!
Join ASPIRE, a Lehigh Valley human services organization that specializes in supporting individuals who have been, are currently being, and/or are at high risk of being trafficked and exploited. The ASPIRE mission is to provide an environment of safety, healing, and empowerment that will equip victims of trafficking with the services and support essential to their pursuit of independence.
The goal of Freedom Fest is to bring together organizations from the social service fields for mental health, physical health, veteran support, human trafficking, and others to celebrate a grassroots abolitionist movement in the Lehigh Valley and beyond!
Freedom Fest is a one-day festival featuring a 5K Run/Walk. Funds raised from this event go directly to supporting Lehigh Valley human trafficking education, shelter needs, and survivors. The festival will feature sponsors from various organizations and corporations within the Lehigh Valley who support freedom from trafficking and offer resources to the community. Freedom Fest is a family-friendly event with live music, food, educational resources, and much more! Guest speakers will present on topics of survival and resilience.

Who Are We Supporting
Human trafficking is often considered a "not in my backyard issue." The Lehigh Valley is not immune to the atrocities of human trafficking. Truck stops, hotels, massage parlors, and street corners are some of the locations where these crimes occur.
Your participation will raise funds to help support Aspire To Autonomy’s efforts, which include their Freedom Station Safe House/Emergency Shelter, Community Intervention Services, Community Mental Health Clinic. and Project Underground Railroad education and activation training series.
