Details:

The definition of intersectional community organizing is prioritizing the concerns of the most marginalized. This approach requires centering the needs of those burdened by multiple intersections of oppression while DE-centering the needs of those with the most societal privilege.

Privileged groups – including, but not limited to, white, male, straight, cisgender, and/or able-bodied individuals – are prone to stifle and resist initiatives not directly addressing their priorities. Boston-based poet and activist DiDi Delgado will discuss the challenges and rewards of intersectional community organizing.
