Systemic violence and institutionalized prejudices don’t victimize people in neat little boxes, such as “race” or “sex”.
Highlighted in ELK’s most popular post HERE, Kimberlé Crenshaw identified how we cannot rely on a single category of a lived experience (e.g., being queer, or being chronically ill) to explain something as complicated as oppression.
Any attempt to challenge oppression – through community organizing or personal daily battles – requires solutions that cross boundaries, defy labels and overlap in beautiful, messy ways.
That being understood, ELK has organized this website by keyword topics to make content more accessible. Some resources will appear on multiple pages because it is relevant to both by discussing multiple subjects.
