Alianza Youth Summit 2020: La Roxay

In “De aqui, pero tambien de aqui y aqui”, workshop participants will be introduced to the term “intersectionality.” Workshop attendees will learn about intersectionality as a theory, its herstory, how this word shows up in Latinx Communities, and how this word, in action and understanding, can support our collective analysis as we continue to build movements and fight for liberation. The term “Intersectionality” was coined in 1989 by Professor Kimberlé Crenshaw. Dr. Crenshaw is a Black Feminist, Lawyer, Civil Rights Attorney, and a lead scholar in critical race theory.

This presentation took place August 21st, 2020 for the annual Youth Leadership Summit hosted by the Alianza Leadership Program.
