THE FREEDOM MOVEMENT
is the new name of the Worldteam Foundation, founded in 2008 by Rick and Sue Clark.
We began doing seminars on fighting human trafficking and sexual exploitation in Thailand & America. We first developed the SoCal Restoration Coalition.
In August of 2017, Gaby Jerez joined our staff and we began doing the the research that led to Azusa Set Free.
Our vision grew to BATTLING SEXUAL EXPLOITATION in Azusa. Our passion is to create a prototype and to launch many Cities Set Free projects.
As we address issues and provide training in our home city of Azusa, WE WANT TO START A MOVEMENT all across America. In 2019, our Board of Directors rebranded our vision as THE FREEDOM MOVEMENT.
Rick’s commitment to The Freedom Movement has been the culmination of decades of seeking to provide solutions to the worldwide injustice of human trafficking and sexual exploitation, especially of the “girl-child.”
