A Community Empowerment Platform 
For the Benefit of All 


A social movement that only moves people is merely a revolt. 
A movement that changes both people and institutions is a revolution.

Freedomtrain

Members of the Underground Railroad often used specific terms, based on the metaphor of the rail way. The Railroad was often known as the "freedom train” which headed towards "Heaven" or "the Promised Land"

FreedomTrain Framework

FreedomTrain represents a new informational-economic infrastructure for regenerative asset creation and sustainable development.

FreedomTrain seizes upon the singular social, economic and ecological opportunity of our time; the transition from an extractive  economic and governance space to a non-extractive Cooperatively owned economic and governance space aligned with Peace, Love and Purpose.

The FreedomTrain Community Empowerment Platform is explicitly designed to facilitate the acquisition, creation and funding of civic and public goods that are aligned with an understanding of Mutuality and the practice of Peace, Love and Purpose.

Layered on top of the FreedomTrain Community Empowerment Platform is a comprehensive grouping of tools and processes that support Cooperative Communities in the FreedomTrain network as they lead, innovate, organize and communicate .


FreedomTrain represents a potent alternative to both Impact investing and philanthropy, neither of which are capable of creating the social, economic, political and ecological solutions at the scale that is required now.

FreedomTrains whole systems design approach enhances the ability to see complex scenarios as they arise anywhere in the world, all with local, regional, national and global implications.

FreedomTrain uses this form of design to turn complex ecological and socioeconomic issues into opportunities to regenerate and transform the earth and local communities at scale.

FreedomTrain represents a vehicle for funding the creation and acquisition of digital and real world assets as well as local and global infrastructure opportunities based on actual public needs, where value is derived not from speculation, but from improvements that are designed to regenerate the earth and communities at scale from the ground up.

FreedomTrain is an adaptive Community Empowerment Platform for creating, redistributing, and structuring real assets in the form of natural resources, public utilities and Cooperatively owned businesses, and technologies.

FreedomTrain Commmunity Assets

How do we move from a constant need for growth and resource extraction, towards an economy based on democracy, justice and sustainability?

With FreedomTrain the strategy is clear: shifting ownership structures at all levels.

The FreedomTrain Community Empowerment Platform has been developed with an understanding that a more equitable, sustainable, and democratic system must be based on a pluralistic landscape of cooperative ownership and cooperative governance.

Global Community Ownership of assets, services, and enterprises are held collectively by FreedomTrain Cooperatives either directly or through representative structures.

Community ownership of railways, road networks, natural resources, and banking helped build the infrastructure, institutions, and technologies of the mid-twentieth century consensus and the mixed economy of social democracies. Today, community ownership once again has a key role to play in laying the foundations for a transformative and prosperous economy.

FreedomTrain Cooperatives will be funded to create and acquire digital and real world assets. These assets will have a wide range from technology infrastructure to real world infrastructure. All assets that are created or acquired will be owned wholly or partially by FreedomTrain Cooperatives.

Whenever possible FreedomTrain will repatriate land to the indigenous and diaspora communities.
