Our Mission

The mission of the Hopkinton Freedom Team is to create unity in the community by fostering inclusion, solidarity and compassion for all people.  The Freedom Team is focused on moving beyond tolerance to embracing, sharing and celebrating our community’s diversity.  Its members meet monthly to explore ways of offering dialogue, support and programming to community members with a goal of promoting love, inclusion and trust (“LIT”).

The Freedom Team also offers a safe, confidential and respectful space to discuss incidents involving harassment or discrimination related to race, color, sex, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, national origin, religion, disability or class using a transformative justice model. This model offers opportunities for conversation and reconciliation to help repair experiences of  misunderstanding or harm.  Individuals may access this opportunity to talk by calling the hotline number at 774-278-4455 if they have experienced or witnessed bias-motivated threats, harassment or violence. 

The first Freedom Team formed in 2016 in Natick through the inspiration of Jamele Adams; the Hopkinton Freedom Team formed in 2020.
