How do dismantling the gender binary and anti-racism relate to uprooting classism and disability justice? In this workshop, we will explore the intersections of identity and liberation. By placing LGBTQ issues and gender justice at the center, we will discuss how queer liberation is tied up with all forms of liberation. Using a strong anti-oppression lens, this popular education style workshop will give participants a safe place to discuss power and privilege, reflect on the state of their communities, and leave with concrete action steps to challenge and change the conversations and conditions in their communities and beyond.
