Blog Post about our U.S. National Speaking Tour, Road to Freedom
Seattle is a city known for its generosity and innovation and is a growing global tech hub.
Matt spoke at two tech giants in this “Emerald city”– several people told us that it was “impossible” to get a foot in the door into these companies. Indeed it is very difficult. But we believe there are caring people in these places that can use their influence and generous spirit to effect social change on behalf of the most marginalised and voiceless slaves. We are believing in the impossibles to happen on this Road to Freedom. In recent months, suddenly doors to presidents of countries, Hollywood celebrities, US Senators have been opened and continue to open for Matt Friedman.
Matt also interviewed on several TV, radio and print media outlets, thanks to the generous assistance from Jim, the director of Crime Stoppers in this region. (Photo of Jim below, on the left. Matt is on the right)

On June 20th, Monday night, philanthropy advisors Heather and her husband Eric, a lovely influential couple, hosted us at their beautiful home. Our lawyer friend Andy and a well known local restauranteur connected us. Several local NGOs, medical professionals and those involved in philanthropy and international charities joined us on this memorable night (photos below).
