Share This Bridge Called My Back: Women of Color and the Fight for Economic Security

Event Details

The discussion will create a platform for the rigorous exploration of how gender intersects with economic and racial inequality in New York City and will feature moderator Professor Christina Greer, and panelists Linda Sarsour, Luna Ranjit, Joanne Smith, and Margarita Rosa. Hailing from different professional backgrounds and heritages, the panel will bring together a wide array of voices that share the experience of active engagement with the question of identity-based inequality, disenfranchisement, and criminalization. Together, the panelists will explore the needs of female victims of socioeconomic and racial disinheritance in an effort to understand social inequality as experienced by women belonging to different societal groups.

To promote responsive government, the WCC shapes public policy through education, issue analysis, advocacy and civic participation.
