Freedom Dreaming is a concept that was put forth in 2003 by Professor Robin D.G. Kelly, a Black historian and author who is presently the Gary B. Nash Professor of American History at UCLA. To practice “freedom dreaming”, we are called to envision not what we are fighting against, but what we are fighting for. This practice, while only recently coined two decades ago, has been a practice long passed on through different generations of Black and Brown leaders.

For our May webinar, Tarana Burke – the founder of the Me Too movement – and Najma Johnson – the co-founder of Together All in Solidarity – will engage in an intimate conversation about their respective experiences working in the anti-violence movement and how we can apply the practice of Freedom Dreaming to building a more inclusive and accessible movement.
