Today, we have a historic opportunity to join together to make a collective statement about the humanitarian values that make America a shining beacon of hope among all nations.
Over the past 3 years, Farhang Foundation, a non-political, non-religious, non-profit cultural organization, has commissioned, secured city authorization and raised enough money to start fabrication of The Freedom Sculpture - Freedom, a Shared Dream, a permanent iconic monument celebrating individual freedom, multicultural coexistence and religious tolerance -- the humanitarian ideals enshrined by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution of the United States.
The winning design of the Freedom Sculpture is themed on the Cyrus Cylinder from 2,500 years ago, widely considered the first declaration human rights, whereby Cyrus the Great Persian King originally granted these same rights to all within his vast and culturally diverse empire.
Once built, the Freedom Sculpture will stand in the heart of Los Angeles, one of the world’s most culturally diverse cities, as a permanent iconic reminder of that freedom, inclusiveness and tolerance are the universally shared humanitarian values that truly make America great.
Our goal is to have over a million people of all kinds come together to support the building of this great monument, so that the Freedom Sculpture becomes the most popularly supported monumental gift in American history -- by comparison the Statue of Liberty had just over 100,000 supporters.
To that end, all supporters of the Freedom Sculpture will be permanently memorialized on the project’s Online Supporters' Wall, and their names will live forever as part of this iconic monument’s eternal legacy.
