Freeset: Perspectives on the Business of Freedom, From Kolkata to Cincinnati

Join the Freedom Center Mar. 6 as we honor Kerry and Annie Hilton, founders of Freeset Global, as Everyday Freedom Heroes. Operating out of Kolkata, India in the neighborhood that houses India’s largest red-light district, Freeset has provided alternative employment and economic freedom to hundreds of women trapped in India’s notorious sex trade through the sales of export-quality bags and apparel.

Along with the ceremony, business leaders will hold a panel discussion on social enterprise, featuring Freeset Founder Kerry Hilton and local CEOs Kurt Reiber of Freestore Foodbank, Pam Green of Easter Seals Tristate and Jock Pitts of People Working Cooperatively.

Reception starts at 6 p.m, followed by the program at 7 p.m.  Cost: Free. RSVP recommended. Click here to RSVP.
