About Us

The Artistic Freedom Initiative (AFI), a program of the SDK Foundation for Human Dignity, was founded on the notion that artists are uniquely situated to positively and powerfully affect change.


Led by a group of immigration and human rights attorneys, AFI provides pro bono immigration services and resettlement assistance to at-risk artists whose freedom of expression has been restricted, and who have demonstrated a commitment to advancing progressive social change and fundamental human rights. Further, AFI works with immigrant artists to champion art produced in exile, advance creative cultural exchange, improve conditions for artists in their home countries, and safeguard their ability to express themselves creatively throughout the world.
