Finding What We’re FOR & Fighting for What We Love
Moulden at Placemaking 10, University of Orange
Dominic T. Moulden is a longtime resource organizer at Organizing Neighborhood Equity (ONE DC), a collectively-led organization that builds people power and economic and racial equity in Washington, DC. He is a frequent lecturer at universities and conferences regarding equitable revitalization, cooperative economics, affordable housing, workplace democracy, community development, and public policy. Dominic represented ONE DC in the 400 Years of Inequality National Organizing Committee, and is a longtime collaborator with coalition member University of Orange; in 2020, he was the 2020 Ernest Thompson Fellow for Program & Coalition.
Dominic is also a community-accountable photographer and social justice documentarian. A native of east Baltimore, his images celebrate Black love and resilience while providing uncompromising witness to the ongoing displacement of Afro-diasporic people in Baltimore and elsewhere in the Americas. His creative practice and organizing work are both dedicated to fostering a culture of health that includes art, joy, and radical resource redistribution.
A collection of photographs and text by organizer and social justice documentarian Dominic T. Moulden, Finding What We’re FOR & Fighting for What We Love is an archive of people fighting for what they love.

Havana & Fusterlandia, Cuba
These images give us inspiration for the creation of a global people’s platform. This is what a Liberation Zone looks like: free health care, free housing, free education. The two women pictured at the farm were given that land by the state to create an herbal medicinal garden. Medicinal gardens say “we can take care of ourselves.” This is important for cities like Orange, Philly, Baltimore, and Camden that have the space to do it.
Jose Rodriguez Fuster was asked by the community in Fusterlandia to use his art to make the community beautiful. All the artwork is based on what people told him they wanted to see in their community.
