Our mission is to create a collective impact by building meaningful connections for Midwest Empowerment.

FACT has announced their theme! “Hear & Now” which centers around unraveling the stories of the past to reflect on the present and create a community of leaders. Through listening to these voices, we write our own stories. Can’t wait for another year of great experiences! #FACT2014
