Note from the editor

Up, Up with Liberation is a digital collective dedicated to liberation through creative expression. With our roots firmly planted in the DC, Maryland, Virginia (DMV) area, we believe liberation starts with community. Born out of a community of organizers pursuing justice for migrants and communities of color in the DMV, we are nurturing a culture of resistance through storytelling. UUWL! is an unapologetically brave space where we provide room for people to speak their truths in whatever ways feel authentic to them — even in ways that feel most difficult. We believe storytelling is a powerful tool that can build solidarity and serve as a catalyst for collective action. Every week we will publish struggles for dignity, reflect on community organizing, and inspire action through the arts. We hope this platform allows for honest sharing of lessons learned and best practices for channelling hope, rage, and joy. Read more: bit.ly/uuwl-intro
