What We Do ยป Intersection of Oppressions

Intersection of Oppressions

ReconcilingWorks works at the intersection of oppressions. We recognize that oppression occurs within complex, interrelated combinations of social and cultural categories, such as class, race, age, economic status, body shape, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, and mental and physical ability. We believe that the roots of oppression can best be identified, minimized, and ultimately eliminated using this intersectional frame. None of us is free until all are free. (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.)
