Intersectionality is a way to describe how our multiple identities (race, ethnicity, gender, religion, class, age, and more) position us socially, politically, and economically.
During this community conversation and workshop, we will have opportunities to better understand how intersectionality can color our interactions with one another as well as ways we might embrace our differences, with a goal toward a more unified community.
Findings from a study on racial inequality in the Johnstown region in the early 2000s will be shared, and case studies and role playing will give us space to practice constructive ways to resist hate and embrace diversity. We’ll also explore how diversity and inclusion are related to community prosperity.
