Meet the Freedom Foundation’s Canvassers
The anti-worker Freedom Foundation, which is also operating under the unregistered name “Opt Out Today,” has collected the personal information of thousands of public workers throughout the Northwest. Now they’re giving this information to the few operatives they have, with no regard for your personal privacy or safety. Freedom Foundation staff have been known to show up unannounced at workers’ doors in various canvass efforts. We’ve already heard reports of these canvassers lying to and being overly aggressive toward union members.
The Freedom Foundation has demonstrated disregard for public workers’ safety. It’s in the public interest that these canvassers and staff who canvass are made known.
Some Freedom Foundation staff members have openly made racist, homophobic, and misogynistic statements, including blaming immigrant parents for their children being taken away and mocking survivors of domestic abuse. The Freedom Foundation even hired a convicted violent felon who once joked about bringing a gun to the homes of union members. Some of the canvassers are college students with no previous experience in labor, no real knowledge of the movement, and no understanding of the repercussions their actions can have on the livelihoods of working people.
This website will be updated as we learn more. You can help us expose the Freedom Foundation by reporting canvassers when you see them.
