Franklin D. Roosevelt's Four Freedoms Speech

"Our true destiny is not to be ministered unto but to minister to ourselves and to our fellow men." - President Franklin D. Roosevelt

At a time when the future of Democracy was in question throughout the world, President Franklin D. Roosevelt unified a nation and bolstered the faith of millions with his famous "Four Freedoms" Speech. By giving the American people a dedicated goal and purpose for joining the Allied Forces in WWII, President Roosevelt secured the future of Democracy. This Democratic world was to be founded on four essential freedoms.

  • THE FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION
  • THE FREEDOM OF WORSHIP
  • THE FREEDOM FROM WANT
  • THE FREEDOM FROM FEAR

It is ROOSEVELT's mission to continue the fight to secure and maintain these freedoms for people everywhere.
