Organization's mission

Free World Associates is a 30-year old unincorporated network of human rights and democracy promotion activists. Our mission is to promote global peace and economic development by helping closed societies become more democratic, transparent and accountable. We are working with Taproot on 3 projects:

1. "Money, Blood and Conscience" is a novel that aims to bring to public attention Ethiopia’s human rights crisis. A for-profit social enterprise, proceeds will support our pro bono democracy promotion work.

2. Operation Conscience is a social impact campaign to raise awareness of genocides committed by the Ethiopian government.

3. World Liberation Radio aims to test if the basic ideas of nonviolence can be taught to oppressed populations around the world by radio. It is fiscally sponsored by the Social Good Fund, Inc., a 501c3.
