A Conversation about Intersectionality by Canon Eliacín Rosario-Cruz

with 1 Comment

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 8, 2021, 6:45 P.M.–8:15 P.M, Bloedel Hall and via Zoom

“We will work to adopt an intersectional approach in all aspects of our common life, remembering that all forms of oppression are connected. We look to educate ourselves, and share with others, the many places where our privilege blinds us from being compassionate to others.” —from Saint Mark's Statement of Lament and Commitment to Action

“Intersectionality is a lens through which you can see where power comes and collides, where it interlocks and intersects. It’s not simply that there’s a race problem here, a gender problem here, and a class or LBGTQ problem there. Many times that framework erases what happens to people who are subject to all of these things.”  —Dr. Kimberlé Crenshaw

Join Canon Eliacín Rosario-Cruz Wednesday evening for a conversational presentation about Intersectionality and its importance in our congregational life and ministries in the world.

    Dear Eliacin –

    I am so happy to see that we will now start having these kinds of conversations. Intersectionality goes deeper, gets behind the cause(s) of the issues closer to the surface, deep as they are themselves – racism, misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, misoterrany {I made that one up – hatred of the Earth}. There is/are a taproot(s) that feeds all of these, and a study of their intersectionality can lead us closer to it. When we can see that root, we will be able to take the thoughtful steps needed to dig it out. Thank you for offering this contribution to bringing us closer to cleared ground!
