Accessible social justice events

An orange backgroud with text saying change makers.Social justice campaigners use the term “intersectionality” which means that a person can identify as belonging to more than one marginalised group. For example, gay, Aboriginal and with a disability. But sometimes it’s easy to forget about diversity. To help think broadly about the diversity in our population, The Commons Social Change Library has a concise list of things to think about when running an event. The title of the article is, How to make your social justice event accessible.  An interesting organisation with many resources.

You can also find out about The Intertwine Charter: Going beyond anti-discrimination and towards pro-active change to welcome others. It has 6 sections showing where organisations can proactively welcome others.

Editor’s comment: The term intersectionality is yet to enter web dictionaries. Jargon can also be excluding – it sounds more like a roads and traffic word.
