“Freedom Dreaming”

Some context behind Elia’s piece:

Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza sat down with CNN political commentator Sally Kohn to discuss systematic racism, the Black Lives Matter movement, and hope. In a far-reaching discussion on the current political climate and the art of organizing, Garza brought up the importance of starting with the self. In order to participate in long-term social change and fight cynicism, Garza suggested spending 10 minutes a day “freedom dreaming”—taking a few minutes to imagine the future you hope for, and how it can be achieved.
