 Freedom First International

The Freedom First International was originally formed in 2009 and is an international non-governmental organization that conducts research and advocacy on human rights. Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois with scheduled offices in New York City, London ,and Orlando, Florida. The main aim of Freedom First is to advance the cause of civil rights, human rights and Social Justice in America in relation to liberation from unjust economic, political, or social conditions.

It has been described as “an interpretation of Christian faith through the poor’s suffering, their struggle and hope, and a critique of society as an example “Christianity through the eyes of the poor” From its inception, this has been the vision of President/Founder Gregg L Greer.

As its title suggests “Freedom First,”, was born out of a rich civil rights tradition because it’s Founder Gregg L. Greer wanted to help preserve the historical legacy of The Southern Christian Leadership Conference, or S.C.L.C (video,above) came primarily from the respect for the Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. In late 2009 while attending at Southern Christian Leadership Conference Meeting at Historical Ebenezer Baptist Church (which in 1960 Dr. King, Jr. became a co-pastor of Ebenezer with his father, “Daddy” King. King remained in that position until his death in 1968. Greer found the S.C.L.C Founder vision and applied it in building his organization. 

freedom-pics

Greer started the Freedom First International as an initiative that searches for ideas that help bring social change by connecting thousands of people from all around the world believing that church leadership should play a major part in the lives of all, and church leaders should play a more significant role in communities around the world. First Freedom International was also influenced by an existing social theory that emphasizes of practice (or, more technically, “Praxis”) over doctrine in the church which included Servant Christian base communities (SCBCs).

Liberation Theology is the guiding principle of Freedom First, as it strives to be a bottom-up movement in practice, with Biblical interpretation and practice designed by lay practitioners themselves, rather than by the hierarchy.

Freedom Greer Pres Promo.jpg

Greer was called to the ministry while in his early teens and became an Associate Pastor (Minister) in the (COGIC) Church of God Christ-denomination in the Hampton Roads Virginia Area. His desire for social uplift came while in undergraduate studies as a university Criminal Justice Major and member of A.C.L.U American Civil Liberties Union as student advocate against the death penalty.

Greer’s early work with the ACLU In late 2009, while attending Governors State University in the Chicago Area taught him to be an outspoken critic of Economic Oppression, genocide, and the death penalty. In late 2010, while attending Liberty University, Greer began searching for ideas that help bring social change by connecting thousands of people from all around the world, and generating ideas that gain national attention and give the communities a voice.

As a long-term member of the SCLC-Southern Christian leadership Conference -Greer follows the personal example of both Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, the SCLC’s Founder, and the current President of the S.C.L.C Reverend CT Vivian, a close friend of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.

To date Greer has participated in many human rights campaigns and initiatives on a national level including being a Lead advocates for the George Stinney Jr. case, Stinney who is the Youngest Person Executed in modern US History, A nationwide plan of action against “Stand your Ground” and Community Violence and more. In addition, his advocacy work against racial prejudice and discrimination is growing on a national level. Furthermore, Greer as an avid speaker and Christian Writer routinely offers his insights on a variety of matters to radio, newspaper, magazine, and internet outlets globally.

Freedom First International Responds to President Trump’s Threat to Defund Democratic Cities

Media Briefing For Immediate Release

Freedom First International Responds to President Trump's Threat to Defund Democratic Cities.
Attribution: The Guardian

              Introduction

The Trump Administration is looking to cut off billions of dollars in federal funds from U.S. Cities with Democratic Leaders. A five page memo signed by Trump last Wednesday calls for federal funding to be cease in NYC and three other cities where Trump claims there is a presence of “Anarchist Jurisdiction.”

In an effort to build his re-election campaign, he is pushing his agenda amid the uprising of continuous racial injustice protests that has resulted from law enforcement’s involvement in assaults and brutal killings of unarmed black people across the nation.                       

Official Press Statement

We at Freedom First International believe Instead of encouraging unity, and enforcing judicial equality, within law enforcement, The Trump administration continues to add fuel to the fire, by defending the actions of members of supremacy groups. A recent example is the case of Kyle Rittenhouse, a seventeen year old, who was visually armed and had fatally shot two people, during a protest of a shooting of yet another unarmed black man Jacob Blake in Kenosha Wisconsin.

We most “strongly” oppose any action that justifies the murder of any human being and strongly urge that President Trump is incorrect to condone Kyle Rittenhouse’s actions, as Trump recently sent a twitter text which seeks to justify the shooting as self defense. 

  Freedom First International Summary 

Freedom First International realizes that the withholding of any federal funding including any relief funds by elected government officials is unethical, and perhaps used only to gain votes and financial control over the people.

We are concerned that the ongoing battle to gain political control has abandoned the needs and safety of all people, with members of both parties seemingly at each other’s throats-and the livelihood of millions of citizens are at stake.

We are calling for judicial justice, diversity, and equality from our local governments, community leaders, law enforcement, and elected officials, to ensure a better quality of life for everyone.

While we are “sick and tired of being sick and tired”– we will work upto the point of exhaustion until we see and feel visible change. (FFI)

FREEDOM FIRST INTERNATIONAL RESPONDS IN DISAGREEMENT WITH DONALD TRUMP THREATENING TO PULL FUNDING FROM EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS THAT TEACH THE 1619 PROJECT
Attribution: NY TIMES

Introduction

Freedom First International stands behind, and completely supports the state of California’s decision to incorporate the New York Time’s 1619 project into their U.S. History public school curriculum. At Freedom First International, we believe that slavery is so ingrained in U.S. History,starting with the first slaves being brought over to what would later become the United States in the year 1619.

Official Press Statement-We at Freedom First International strongly urge that President Donald Trump believes that this curriculum is “rewriting” history and is a part in a wider “cultural revolution”. We would like to point out that this curriculum is a Pulitzer Prize winning curriculum, and the facts included in it are undeniable. Slavery is an integral part of U.S. History, and that needs to be clearly taught to our students, both white and people of color, in order to begin the healing process.In modern day Germany, students in higher grade levels are taught about the horrors of Nazi
Germany, Hitler, and his associates. This is an ironclad plank in their national curriculum. It was instituted so that Germany would never again repeat the atrocities of the past.We believe it is time for the American people to reckon with their past, and accept it for what it was. This can begin with this curriculum being an integral part of California’s U.S. History curriculum, and hopefully will be adopted around the entire United States.

Freedom First International Responds to the Kyle Rittenhouse Shooting Asking For A Swift Prosecution, asking President Trump and Political Officials To Stay Out of the Way of Justice

Media Briefing For Immediate Release Monday September 7, 2020 at  4 pm

KENOSHA, WISCONSIN, USA – AUGUST 25: A man (R) was shot in the chest as clashes between protesters and armed civilians who protect the streets of Kenosha against the arson during the third day of protests over the shooting of a black man Jacob Blake by police officer in Wisconsin, United States on August 25, 2020. (Photo by Tayfun Coskun/Anadolu Agency via etty Images)

Introduction

Kyle Rittenhouse, a 17-year-old self-described militia member from Illinois, has been charged with homicide. He faces a first-degree intentional homicide charge and five other charges in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Under Wisconsin law, Rittenhouse is charged as an adult, and he would face life in prison if convicted. It’s now believed that he shot and killed two people and wounded a third during two separate shooting incidents that unfolded within a few minutes of each other during protest after the shooting of Jacob Blake.

“He was trying to get away from them, I guess … and he fell,” Trump claimed, citing videos of the Rittenhouse attack. “And then they very violently attacked him.” The president claimed that the teenager, who was carrying an assault-style rifle, “probably would’ve been killed.” “He was in very big trouble. He probably would’ve been killed, but it’s under investigation,” Trump said.

Official Press Statement

From Sixteen shots and a cover up to a knee on the neck that end a life with one poor soul pleading” I can’t breathe” to seven shots in the back to an home invasion that becomes state stationed murder. 

Our Question is when it is enough that innocent lives will be taken before we finally take a serious approach to gun sense in America. Today’s nonsensical approach to the gun violence we must continue to look for outside the box thinking, we must look for ideas like IL House Bill HB1586 which includes serialization of ammunition to trace bullets.

Justice must be brought forth with swift, fast certain transparency

Dr. Matt Harrington,  Anti Gun Violence Coordinator- Freedom First International.

Freedom First International Summary

With this Tragic event-The President of our County has once again deviated from certain and correct leadership when given the opportunity to rebuke violence. So Instead of promoting, “Peace and Resolution he (President Trump) and others have made a decision to make this a partisan political issue. This young man took the lives of two other human beings and attempted to take a third. As a necessity we at Freedom First International believe Rittenhouse should be charged as an adult and found guilty in a U.S. Court of law — In the days ahead we plan to make this a actionable issue.

For Immediate Release: A federal eviction moratorium has ended and Social Justice Network announce Anti Eviction Campaign to give Voice to those in danger of eviction


A moratorium has ended and Social Justice Network announce Anti Eviction Campaign to give Voice to this in danger of eviction  

Muncie IN, on Monday August 31, 2020 at 10:00 am Freedom First International, Muncie Housing Crisis Coalition along with community activist would like to invite Members of the media, Elected Official’s & Activist, to join us in a Press Conference (Delaware County Building 100 W. Washington St.  Muncie, In.) To give a voice and begin the fight for those who are facing potential eviction as millions of America’s renters could soon be pushed to the brink of homelessness.

Although Gov. Eric Holcomb temporarily suspended residential evictions due to a public health emergency caused by the novel coronavirus. People across the state who are left jobless or with reduced income as they struggle with lack or loss of finances are still in danger of becoming homeless.
The group will be joined along with members of the community who have been subject to facing evictions, as court hearings are still going on in pockets of the country including Muncie and others. In some cases, judges are allowing renters and landlords to attend hearings by phone or video conferencing. 

The press conference will be broadcast on over 60 national social media sites.

OBJECTIVE:

  • The enhanced unemployment benefits that have kept many afloat have expired. The recession triggered by the pandemic is expected to be deeper and longer than initially forecast as coronavirus cases surge across the country.
  • Of the 110 million Americans living in rental households, 20 percent are at risk of eviction by Sept. 30, according to an analysis by the Covid-19 Eviction Defense Project, a Colorado-based community group. African American and Hispanic renters are expected to be hit hardest.
  • A federal moratorium that had protected an estimated 12 million people from eviction for four months ended July 24.

Individuals, organizations, communities have also been invited to participate in this movement as our group plans to gather momentum and stage actions all over the nation to combat this national housing crisis.
