Episode Notes

THE COLLECTIVE FREEDOM PROJECT
The Collective Freedom Project (CFP) is a movement media and resource hub that tells the stories of the local and regional efforts where people — both U.S. citizens and non U.S. citizens — are coming together to fight unique campaigns against criminalization in their communities. From Chicago to California, Atlanta to Texas, activists, organizers, and communities are rising up to fight against criminalization and violence in varied yet connected forms.

SERIES OVERVIEW
Caullen and David of BrownTown and organizers across the U.S. discuss fighting for a world away from police and ICE violence and towards a world with life-affirming institutions, respect for our natural environments, collective freedom and liberation. The nuanced conversations in the series allow for a more complex, dynamic, and frank digestion of the varied political terrain in which we wage region-specific efforts as well as introspective dives into the broader lessons we can learn from each other and from this moment, summer 2021, a year after the George Floyd uprisings.
