The #LetUsBreathe Collective is an alliance of artists and activists organizing through a creative lens to imagine a world without prisons and police. We organize artists, educators, healers, and organizers to love and transform themselves, their families, their communities, and their cities through radical imagination and healing.
We envision a world without police, without prisons, and without global systems of oppression. We believe artists are the vanguard of revolution, and we incubate visionaries charged with the work of imagining and designing that world.
The #LetUsBreathe Collective believes in love over capitalism, abundance over scarcity, and collaboration over control. We believe that people and communities are able to govern themselves peacefully when they have access to and sovereignty over quality education, housing, art, healthcare, nutrition, meaningful and prosperous livelihoods, and skills for nonviolently resolving harm and conflict.
