Why are we talking about liberation?

"Liberation requires us to become aware of and dismantle the inevitable ways systems of domination live in us. Freedom, the ongoing state achieved through liberation, requires this awareness profoundly. Through releasing old, habitual, behavioral contracts that uphold white supremacy in ourselves and others and building new embodied competencies, we reclaim our bodies and inhabit our lives ever more fully and intentionally. As our experience of life is heightened and nourished by increased awareness and capacity to choose, rather than only react, we become more able to coordinate skillfully with others from a ground of authenticity, trust and accountability." -Black Organizing for Leadership
