19 Families Join Forces to Establish a Safe Space Called Freedom, GA

19 families have joined forces to purchase over 100 acres of land in Wilkinson County, GA. They hope to establish a new town called Freedom, GA that will serve as a safe haven for black families. Motivated by the recent killings of unarmed black people across the country, the group of families hopes to build space for reunions, weddings, retreats, hiking, outdoor activities, and more.
