Host an Event on Campus

Freedom Day is April 13, 2017.  Last year we expanded Freedom Day beyond our museum in Philadelphia and engaged student groups across the country, who hosted events on their campuses. Many of our groups are participating again in 2017, and we hope even more will participate
