We will not be divided: Connecting the struggles of Muslim and Queer communities (July 27th)

From API Chaya:

“Join us for July Community Education Series (CES) Special Topic – We will not be divided: Connecting the struggles of Muslim and Queer communities

Historically, people in power have worked to divide marginalized groups – pitting black folks versus asian folks, queer folks versus people of color – using systems to divide us and keep us struggling against each other, rather than coming together and working to dismantle the structural oppression that divides us all. Particularly, in this time of intense anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim sentiment, and in the wake of the shooting in Orlando, we want to build solidarity between our movements – particularly between Queer and Muslim communities – and recognizing that there are many folks who hold multiple of these intersecting identities.

Join us to discuss the historical implications of divided movements, the particular role of faith-based organizing in our current political time, and how to build between Queer and Muslim Communities. Join us in declaring, “We will not be divided!”
