For too long, despite growing poverty rates among LGBTQ people, large mainstream LGBTQ organizations have not yet prioritized economic justice issues. Similarly, economic justice organizations have historically not prioritized LGBTQ issues. In both sectors, a radical intersectional lens that includes the people of color they are serving has often had to be hard won if won at all. Meanwhile, economic inequality is growing in the United States. Join us to discuss the economic justice movement building that needs to happen and is happening in the LGBTQ community.
