Intersectionality: Power & Oppression

  • WeWork 641 S Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20001 United States (map)

Intersectionality holds that the classical conceptualizations of oppression within society do not act independently of each other. Instead, these forms of oppression interrelate, creating a system of oppression that reflects the "intersection" of multiple forms of discrimination. Oppression such as sexism, classism, racism, colorism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia and belief-based bigotry.

Join the Thursday Network as Dr. Waller and other experts examine both power and oppression, how we identify our power and oppression and use it to rewrite societal perception. Join us to discuss intersectionality and how can we better support and empower each other and other marginalized groups within this system.
