On new ground

Non-traditional and marginalized communities attacked for their lifestyles and their individual choices… whether it’s based on sexual identity, gender equity or the quest for collective empowerment. So how do we challenge and overcome gender and sexual oppression?

Dr. Andrea Smith, of “INCITE! Women of Color Against Violence” co-founder, Loretta Ross, SisterSong founder, and Imani Henry, International Action Center staff organizer spoke at the U.S. Social Forum in Atlanta, Georgia this summer. They have some answers.
