“Rising Power” brings us to Madison, Wisconsin, where we meet community organizers Kabzuag and M, co-directors of Freedom, Inc. What began as a sexual assault support group has grown into an organization at the forefront of battles over education reform, police brutality, land access and ownership, women’s safety and security, and mental health. Driven by their own intimate experiences of violence and poverty, M and Kabzuag have carved out a space for multiracial, multilingual, and multigenerational community members to disrupt a broken system, equipping Black, Hmong, and Khmer women, queer, and gender non-conforming folks with the tools they need to confront oppression in all facets of their lives and ultimately build a roadmap toward shared liberation.
The episode may be viewed online for free here, and is approximately 18 minutes. Please view the episode prior to our discussion regarding the following topics:
- What is intersectionality and what are some examples of it in 2020?
- How does the film Rising Power illuminate the concept of intersectionality?
- How does the legal industry address the intersectionality issues raised in the film?
- Why is it important for people of color (POC) to raise consciousness surrounding the intersectionality issues raised in the firm, in the legal workplace?
