While economic inequality has received increased attention in recent years, less visible is the role racism and patriarchy play in the growing divide. This popular education workshop asks participants to reflect on their experiences of the economy and think about the structures that have contributed to the ongoing exploitation of work performed by women, immigrants and people of color. This workshop will be followed by a discussion: How can we use popular education to build a shared intersectional analysis of economic inequality?

Mientras que la desigualdad económica ha tenido un aumento en atención en los años recientes, menos visible ha sido el papel que el racismo y el patriarcado juegan en esta creciente división.

Este taller será seguido por una discusión: ¿Cómo podemos nosotros usar la educación popular para crear un análisis interseccional compartido de injusticia económica?
