On Friday January 20th we launched #FreedomCities in New York City. This campaign redefines what safety and freedom truly means for our communities. We dream of a city where our entire community can live freely with safety and in their full dignity. Our communities can’t wait and neither can our freedom.
What is a Freedom City?
Freedom Cities demand that our communities have the resources they need to thrive. It’s about making entire cities, towns, and communities safe for immigrants, Black people, Muslims, workers and all oppressed communities. We believe we all deserve to live with dignity and have the opportunity thrive without fear of physical or economic violence at the hands of the corporations, vigilantes or government.
Freedom Cities is a comprehensive framework that includes many of the demands that we’ve seen come out of our campaigns over the last decade including sanctuary, investments in humanity and our planet, safety beyond policing, real community control, worker rights, community defense, and divestment from militarization and other programs that oppress our people. Take the pledge to add your city to the #FreedomCities Movement!
