A Spectrum of Injustice: Intersectionality & Racism

Institutional discrimination and systemic oppression negatively impact marginalized people in myriad ways, from racism to sexism and classism to heterosexism. It can be dizzying to sort out all of the ways in which dominant groups leverage power that damage disenfranchised groups. It can be even more challenging to build connections between different oppressed groups. Join us for an important conversation about racism and intersectionality--and what we can all do to challenge the status quo. We will be joined by PaKou Her, a local community organizer and anti-racism trainer/facilitator.

Our dinner this Sunday will be a taco bar, and as always we’ll have a vegetarian option. If you can, please bring a complementary side dish or taco topping to share! We’ll have childcare available for kids up to age 5 right after dinner is over, and a space for older kids to hang out nearby. Dinner and childcare are provided at no cost, but we appreciate any donations you can contribute to the cost of the evening!
