The Moment

Expanding Democracy Through Intersecting Movements

In the continuing fight for justice and the expansion of democracy, understanding intersecting movements to end oppression is imperative and inspiring. Those at the intersections of geography, gender, poverty and race, as LFJ Director Jalaya Lyles Dunn explains, “will determine the fate of our democracy,” and have often been the agents of change, as witnessed by the connections between the past and the present highlighted in the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Civil Rights Memorial Center. For, as James Baldwin noted in the 1960s, knowing our past will have a significant impact on the ways we move forward as a nation toward liberation. These articles and the latest One World poster from the Fall 2022 issue of Learning for Justice magazine can aid in strenghtening that awareness.
