Organized, made donations, made art, prayed, danced, asked for help, and all but given up hope.You see the oppressive systems crashing down all around us, doing their best to cause as much harm and chaos as possible on their way out.You are doing your best to cope. To heal. To fight. To rest. You know that there is something waiting for us on the other side of all of this.You just don’t know exactly what that is, or how to get there. And you want to get there, now.Collective Audacity welcomes you to be part of the work of The Dismantle Collective, a Black-led, POC-centered think tank, creating our collective path to liberation.

I think of fugitivity as Harriet Tubman-ness, the process of seeking and prioritizing collective freedom. The shapeshifting evasion of capture by slave catchers, norms and institutions. The ways we find each other and free each other again and again.” - Alexis Pauline GumbsThe Dismantle Collective is Avery Ebron, David Jackson, Dean Bardouka, Diana Marie Lee, Lynn Johnson, Marie Koesnodihardjo, Olayinka Credle, and Samuel González.
