Chicago Freedom School. The mission of the Chicago Freedom School is to create new generations of critical thinking young people who use their unique experiences and power to create a just world.  CFS provides training and educational opportunities for youth and adult allies to develop leadership skills through the lens of civic action and through the study of the history of social movements and their leaders.
