This first edition of Freedom Circles invites the community to enjoy dinner, learn about campaigns for reparations, and enjoy generative workshops, free healing offerings, performances, and childcare.

Freedom Circles are a partnership between the #LetUsBreathe Collective, the R3 Coalition, and the Illinois Humanities to present a dinner & dialogue to explore how we build a Freedom City. The R3 Coalition (Resist Reimagine Rebuild), an alliance of 30+ social justice organizations convened by Dr. Barbara Ransby, is developing a platform of 5 organizing campaigns that constitute a Freedom City.

This edition of Freedom Circle connects the Envisioning Justice theme of healing through history to the Freedom City theme of reparations and repair.
