DIVERSITY AND INTERSECTIONALITY

Intersectionality is a term coined by Kimberlé Crenshaw, professor and researcher on institutionalized racism. “This term combines social and individual experiences. It is based on the insight that social categories such as gender, origin, class, age, disability do not work in isolation from one another, but are closely interwoven and encourages thinking beyond familiar boundaries and also to face contradictions" (Ref. Claudia Janssen) .

 

From this perspective, our project tries to include more groups that are not represented in the socio-political life of the district. Therefore, it is important to include organizations that link different variables. The presence of people of indigenous or African origin - BIPoC - or people with migration or refugee history and disabilities is to be increased in the coming years.

 

 

 

inclusion, another cross-cutting issue for our work

 

Since 2016, a group of Spanish-speaking families with children with disabilities has been meeting in the Prenzlauer Berg district. Years later they decided to set up the EvbK initiative. Migra Up knew the group and supported their process.

 

Here the information of the group and future activities. Go to EVBK page
