"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 LGBTQIA+ problem there. Many times that framework erases what happens to people who are subject to all of these things. " - Kimberlé Crenshaw
Equity Intersection is an equity and justice education non-profit. We offer adult education courses on all elements of equity, including disability. We believe education is action. Our courses address race, gender and LGBTQ+ status. A unique feature of Equity Intersection is our focus on ableism and disability justice. We believe that a focus on disability strengthens our understanding of all forms of inequity, and so builds empathy, agency and community.
