Chai Chat: Intersectionality in Islam

  • Prayer Room South Road Chapel Hill, NC, 27514 United States (map)

"Intersectionality—the complex, cumulative manner in which the effects of different forms of discrimination combine, overlap, or intersect."

Assalamualaikum Everyone!

Welcome to our first Chai Chat of the semester! This week we'll be discussing the topic of intersectionality and how it relates to our faith. How should we approach issues like feminism and sexuality in the context of Islam? What are the best ways for us to view immigration and racial justice through the lens of our religion? 

Come out to discuss these points and have some free chai!

"If we aren’t intersectional, some of us, the most vulnerable, are going to fall through the cracks. "
- Kimberle Williams Crenshaw, coiner of the term 'Intersectionalism'.
