If you are interested in diversity, you may want to consider joining The Freedom Project, a partnership between Give Back Cincinnati and Freedom Center Young Professionals. Founded in 2007, the Freedom Project serves as a forum for young professionals to think about ways to overcome racism as well as actively serve in the community. Includes dialogue sessions as a platform for brainstorming ways to break down racial barriers while cultivating relationships among young, diverse professionals.
