Harriet Tubman Freedom Awards - Promotion - Banner

Join us as we acknowledge an incredible slate of honorees who’s outstanding commitment to others is the embodiment of the characteristics that made Harriet Tubman who she was.  Recipients of the Harriet Tubman Freedom Award have “impact of life” in their work, but most important, have personal interaction track records with a deeply open and accepting “heart song”.   Their continued work and dedication means they are contributors to “the Celebration of  What It Means To Be Free”.
