Better Together: Bridging LGBTQ Rights & Racial Justice

This workshop builds off ARC?s Better Together project, and looks at the strategic impetus for bridge-building and cross-sectoral innovation between LGBTQ and people of color communities. We will be talking about the imperatives for intersectional lenses in research, advocacy, policy, organizing and activism. At the heart of this workshop is the question ? what does true unity, intersectionality and equity look like? Panelists will be lifting up stories and case studies from their own work, and sharing lessons and best practices for the LGBTQ and racial justice movements.

Speakers: paulina helm-hernandez, Aisha Moodie-Mills, Robert Espinoza, CJ Frosch
