I am a Vision Core member of the #LetUsBreathe Collective, a grassroots alliance of artists, journalists, and activists aiming to harness creative capital and cultural production to deconstruct systemic injustice in America and worldwide. We were the stewards and creators of Freedom Square, a 45-day occupation and community space directly across from a Chicago Police Department torture site on the west side of Chicago. We currently are building out a liberation oasis and movement building space called Breathing Room on the border of Chicago's Englewood and Back of the Yards neighborhoods.
