University of Toronto Equity Studies Students Union Presents… LINKED OPPRESSIONS 2012
November 6-9, 2012
Linked Oppressions was born out of the realization that racism, transphobia and homophobia are deeply affected by one another.
The ways that each of these spaces of oppression are experienced is deeply affected by how we inhabit and exist within the world. Linked Oppressions will be a week of events that are dedicated to speaking about the issues that affect us, learning and healing.
“There is no such things as a single-issue struggle because we do not lead single-issue lives.” - Audre Lorde
At each event, snacks will be provided and venues will be wheelchair accessible.
There will be ASL interpreters at all events.
There will also be gender neutral washrooms and a community cupboard.
