Social change begins with personal empowerment linked to collective liberation.
United We Dream believes that change comes from empowering the whole person. Liberation for our community starts at the personal and individual level by deconstructing our thinking – we challenge ourselves and others to understand the current systems, structures, and institutions that oppress our communities. We work to raise political consciousness of our people and we build understanding and relationships that embrace diversity and see the intersections of our experiences and our individual liberation connected to collective liberation.
We also know that traditional educational structures were created to exclude our community. We are committed to uplifting the educational values and knowledge rooted in our cultures and upbringing while also liberating educational institutions to actually serve our community.
