Sexual freedom is a fundamental human right. The first amendment protects free speech. Freedom of expression is a fundamental human right, enshrined in Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Those three statements are facts. And yet, in the United States, we are facing a wave of increased censorship from book bans, to shadowbanning on social media, from restrictions on our sexual expression online to what’s taught in schools.
Join the Woodhull Freedom Foundation as we discuss these issues, what work is already being done to combat these abuses, and how we can use a human rights framework to fight against censorship.
The Woodhull Freedom Foundation
Established in February 2003, The Woodhull Freedom Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization devoted to education and public advocacy in support of sexual freedom as a fundamental human right. Our work builds on the affirmations of individual rights contained in the United States Constitution, including the Bill of Rights, and in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Woodhull carefully cultivates and works to engage allies from all social, economic, religious and cultural justice communities interested in affirming sexual freedom. We strive to harness the energy of and join with the LGBTQ, Sex Work, Black Lives Matter, #MeToo, free speech, privacy, reproductive freedom, and related movements to bring existing energy to bear on sexual freedom as an additional opportunity for shared discourse and political, cultural and social change.
