abstract background

All oppression is connected – heterosexism, racism, sexism, genderism, colonialism, ableism and all other ways in which we separate ourselves from each other. Disrupting privilege begins with an awareness of the intersectionality of oppression and the misuse of power. The primary means of measuring power is centered in who is in control and who has access. This Movement strives for equity, which moves us beyond equality. Equality is treating everyone the same. Equity is giving everyone the same access needed to be successful.
