WHAT IF? … Radical Imagination: Creating a Future (and Present) of Equity

If someone asked you today to describe the world you want to live in, could you do it? Could you articulate how the neighborhood(s) you work in would look/feel/be in five years if all your equity work were successful? Or are you so immersed in what it takes to keep body and soul together during these very troubled times that you cannot say much about it, nor can you imagine how you/we will ever get there?
