Freedom House Detroit 40th Anniversary Celebration

The 2023 Voices of Freedom Celebration fundraiser will honor the organization’s four decades of life-changing humanitarian aid

Freedom House Detroit will host its 2023 Voices of Freedom fundraiser in celebration of the nonprofit organization’s 40 years of service to refugees, asylum seekers and others who are seeking humanitarian protection in Detroit. The event will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, October 6 at El Kiosko/Kiosco Banquet Hall located at 7271 Dix Rd. in Southwest Detroit. Professional storyteller, podcaster and Detroit native, Shannon Cason will serve as the master of ceremonies.

The event includes hundreds of supporters, community leaders, and elected officials who will enjoy a buffet dinner featuring Hispanic and Arabic cuisine and international musical performances. Red is traditionally associated with a 40th anniversary, symbolizing love and enduring commitment. Freedom House Detroit is encouraging all attendees to embrace this theme by wearing a favorite red accessory such as a tie, necklace, scarf, pocket square or purse. Former Freedom House Detroit residents will also share inspiring stories and personal perspectives from their journeys to find freedom.

Freedom House Detroit provides community housing, legal aid, access to medical and mental health care, and support in navigating U.S. employment and housing systems all at no cost. This year’s event will honor the more than 5,000 lives transformed since the organization started in 1983. Voices of Freedom is a celebration of the diverse community that is Southwest Detroit.
