Embracing Multiplicity

Thursday, October 19, 2017

Wed. Oct 25, 4:30-6:00 pm, 432A Bruininks Hall 

Please join the Feminist Ambassador Brigade (FAB) in collaboration with the Multiracial Student Club in an open community discussion about the intersections of multiracial/multiethnic identities with feminism and social justice work. We will be facilitating dialogue surrounding stereotypes & misconceptions to reach more nuanced understandings of what it means to identify as multiracial/multiethnic, and how recognizing different identities is essential to intersectionality. Although this is labeled as a discussion about multiracial identities, this can extend to multiethnic identities and transracial adoptee experiences. 

We welcome people of any and all identities to engage in this discussion! Light refreshments will be served. 

Please reach out to FAB at fabwmc@umn.edu with any questions regarding the event and/or accessibility. 

“I am a woman with a foot in both worlds; and I refuse the split. I feel the necessity for dialogue. Sometimes I feel it urgently.”
