Last week, Dream Defenders announced our Social Media Blackout, a “sabbatical” of sorts; to re-center, re-connect and build out a solid, yet nimble plan to increase our membership’s strategic advantage in transforming their circumstances locally. Part of what led us to this journey is owning our own truth in building a movement - organizing can be, well, disorganized - beautifully disorganized, righteously flawed - like we as humans can be. We embrace, in fact, love and thrive off this unpredictability, while acknowledging the need for direction to truly meet our collective potential and gain FREEdom.
As we organize to strengthen our collective power, one may say there’s no GPS that tells us the exact roads to take and all the places we should stop along the way - but this is as it should be. There is no exact route to be taken on this journey - it is, indeed, beautifully, righteously flawed. However, there are fellow travelers - those who have journeyed on these roads before and still, and can tell us of the road ahead; those traveling alongside us, with different vantage points, making us aware of what we cannot see; and those traveling with us who remind us when we move too fast, too slow or lose sight of our shared destination.
With these fellow travelers...our Advisors, as well as the constant guidance of our membership, we plan to map out a path to demand and receive unprecedented power for the people over land, bread, housing, education, justice, peace and technology. We are proud to announce our Dream Defenders Advisory Board… a collective of bad a** freedom fighters that we are humbled and honored to call upon for their fellowship, guidance and strategic leadership.
