I want to begin by thanking all of the Conversation Leaders for volunteering their time, effort, and knowledge to this very important conversation on Intersectional Human Rights Organizing. Please take a moment to click on individual Conversation Leaders' profiles to learn more about the work they do and support the organizations and causes they represent. A stronger human rights community can be built through the support and encouragement of an engaged network of activists and practitioners.
The following questions serve as a framework for this discussion thread on 'Defining Intersectionality':
What is intersectionality and how do you and/or your community talk about or experience intersectional oppression?
What are major misconceptions and misunderstandings about intersectionality that need to be dispelled and corrected?
Within your field, community, or social group, what are some foundational texts, people, and historical and contemporary models of intersectional practice and theory?
Why is intersectionality important?
