Sept 26th - GW Votes and the George Washington Museum and Textile Museum Present: Celebrating and Envisioning the Four Freedoms - 11am to 5pm

Conference Room at the George Washington Museum and Textile Museum

This event is a bipartisan event that will provide the opportunity for students to share their thoughts on what Franklin D. Roosevelt called the four freedoms:

·       The freedom of speech and expression.

·       The freedom to worship in the way you choose.

·       Freedom from want.

·       Freedom from fear.

We invite students to explore what these freedoms mean to them, how they see these freedoms demonstrated in our society today, and how they envision these freedoms to evolve when contemplating the future of our country. This event includes activities and dialogues that students and community members can participate in at their leisure.

Voter registration will be encouraged and available during the event. Sign-up to volunteer
