Welcome to the online hub of the North Carolina Freedom Monument Park project. We are a nonprofit dedicated to building a public sculpture park in downtown Raleigh to commemorate historic and on-going struggles for freedom in North Carolina. This park provides a beautiful space in the heart of the state capitol where people can reflect on the past through the sculptural elements, rest and recreate in the present, and be inspired for the future. We need YOU to help us make this dream a reality. Click on one of the links to learn more and get involved today!
