On June 19, 2020, upEND launched a collaborative movement to protect children and reimagine how to support families. Today, on Juneteenth, a day synonymous with liberation, we invite you to continue that vision.

Welcome to Dream, Create, Liberate: A Future Without Family Policing, the inaugural creative publication brought to you by the upEND Movement. As we embark on this journey of imagination and liberation, we invited artists to join us in envisioning a world free from family policing.

Through Afrofuturist-inspired poetry, short works of fiction, and visual art, we seek to weave together a tapestry of visions that transcend the limitations of our present reality. By tapping into the boundless creativity of artists, we hope to spark dialogue, inspire action, and pave the way for transformative change.

  • Read 10 poems, 3 short stories, and see 5 works of art.

  • Meet the prize-winning artists and learn about their visions for the future.

  • Leave inspired to imagine and create in your own community.
