The #LetUsBreathe Collective is an alliance of artists and activists organizing through a creative lens to imagine a world without prisons and police. The Collective operates the Breathing Room space, a Black-led liberation headquarters for arts, organizing, and healing on Chicago's South Side.
Complete with a greenhouse, our people’s farm and green liberation oasis is the epicenter of our #EverybodyEats food justice program, which distributes fresh produce and nourishing meals to support local families, community events, public actions, and mutual aid efforts.
We focus on creating space–to heal, nourish, and resist. This was evident in our work in 2022, and we’re so proud of what we’ve accomplished together. Read our 2022 Impact Report and you’ll find Collective’s work has grown with the help of partnerships and mutual aid, and we’re moving ahead with momentum–thanks to you.
