Here’s an announcement about an event that is being hosted by Just Economics this week. Just Economics is a wonderful organization that advocates for a Living Wage for all employees.

“Intersectionality: looks at the intersections between forms or systems of oppression, domination or discrimination.

Inequality based on race, gender, class, ability, orientation are deeply connected! For example, we know that racism impacts economics when you do not get hired for the job or are turned down to rent an apartment because of your race.

Come explore these intersections through interactive activities and dialogue! Help Just Economics create a performance about intersectionality and our work for justice for our Annual Celebration in December!
