This is intended to be a cross-movement conversation and dialogue opportunity for folks working in all kinds of areas. Several of us are working on issues that simultaneously affect people of color, people with disabilities, people who are transgender, people who are poor and other identity groups. We wanted to talk about ways we are similar and different in our work, and to talk about ways we would like to work together.
This is open and free to anyone who wants to attend.
If you are interested in discussing intersectional organizing with like minded/open minded folks, and want to meet different organizers from across Chicago, we would love to have you with us. We will have a couple of discussion questions to guide us but mostly will hang out and discuss whatever is of interest to the group. This is a great way to get to know other activist folks on a face to face level. You do not have to be an organizer---just being interested is fine.
RSVP: Please RSVP to Amber Smock at firstname.lastname@example.org or (312) 640-2191 so we know how much coffee we will need!
Please refrain from wearing scented products as Access Living strives to be accessible to people with multiple chemical sensitivities. An ASL interpreter will be present. Access Living is a universal access environment. Also, please come prepared to be respectful of all those present since we all come from many perspectives and many walks of life.
