Freedom Dreams is an interview podcast from the Detroit Justice Center hosted by our Founding ED Amanda Alexander and our Communications Manager Casey Rocheteau. We talk to guests about their work, explore historical examples of experiments in liberation, and dream about how to expand the work already being done to build the abolitionist world we want to see beyond police and incarceration. As supporters of DJC’s work, we hope you’ll listen wherever you find podcasts. Please subscribe and if you feel so inclined, leave us a review.

New Episodes Every Other Wednesday.
You’ll hear from authors, educators, organizers, archivists, healers, youth, elders & more.

Each episode asks a question that stokes our curiosity and helps us envision futures with truly just cities where everyone is cared for.
