Intersectional Organizing Principle 

All experiences of marginalization and injustice are interconnected because the struggle for justice is tied to concepts of power and privilege.  Intersectional organizing recognizes that injustice works on multiple and simultaneous levels. 

Because experiences of injustice do not happen in a vacuum, it is imperative to:

  • develop the most effective strategies to create space for understanding privilege;
  • organize in an intersectional framework led by marginalized communities;
  • and build effective systems of resistance and cooperation to take action for justice.

Practical intersectional organizing always focuses on collaboration and relationship building.
