rate of white youth. Free swimming lessons at eight facilities in Rhode Island
are supported by the fundraising and sales efforts of Stages of Freedom.

The Mission of Stages of Freedom:
1) To provide youth of color access to swimming
programs in order to reduce the number of drownings in the minority
