In order to create freer and more just worlds, we must envision them first. This thesis examines how visionary fiction and critical dystopias could serve as potentially useful tools for activists and organizers to imagine different worlds from the ones we currently we have. I examined how the novels Ink and Lunar Braceros: 2125-2148 discussed oppressive immigration policies, and how they demonstrated and critiqued organizing strategies in response to those policies. I ultimately find that this genre can be a useful imaginative space for organizers, with implications for the sustainability of social justice movements in seemingly hopeless circumstances.
