Who We Are
Founded in 2011, Fear 2 Freedom (F2F) is a 501(c)3 global non-profit with a twofold mission to redeem and restore those wounded by sexual assault, bringing them hope and healing, and to change the cultural understanding surrounding this issue by empowering college students to "Be the Change" and "Restore the Joy".
The number "2" in our name represents the fact that, every two minutes, someone is sexually assaulted in America.
What We Do
Through our University Campaign, we partner hospitals and community organizations with universities to provide F2F Kits for victims of sexual assault, child abuse, domestic violence and sex trafficking. At "Celebration Events" on college campuses across the country, students and volunteers join F2F to gain education, awareness and empowerment as they assemble F2F Kits and become a tangible part of the solution.
Why We Matter
1 in 6 women and 1 in 33 men in America will be a victim of sexual assault.
When a victim of sexual assault goes to the hospital for treatment, or the PERK (Physical Evidence Recovery Kit) exam, all of their clothes have to be kept for evidence. This means women, men and children are leaving our hospitals across America in paper scrubs at a time of greatest trauma. Our F2F Kits are a "gift of hope" to these survivors, preserving their dignity by providing their most basic needs.
1 in 5 women have been sexually assaulted during their time in college.
We are empowering college students to by a tangible part of the solution through our University Campaign. Together we can "Be the Change" and "Restore the Joy."
