Intersectionality has become a buzzword in education, but what does it mean and why is it important in schools? Our students have multiple identities; for many, the converging identities make them more vulnerable to discrimination and oppression. Understanding how identities like race, gender, class, sexual orientation and ability intersect can help educators better educate and support all students. This webinar will help participants understand intersectionality and offer strategies for putting knowledge into practice. Our special guest will be Jennifer Coco, a senior staff attorney with the Southern Poverty Law Center, whose work centers on educational advocacy, particularly around halting the school-to-prison pipeline.​
