Redefining Feminist Political Engagement: A Closer Look at Community Organizing Efforts

  • Hinckley Caucus Room (Gardner Commons) 260 South Central Campus Drive, Suite 2018 Salt Lake City, Utah 84112 (map)

Feminist political engagement has historically taken many forms- from the polls to the streets – in the fight for social justice. Grassroots organizations and community organizers recognize the struggle for gender and racial justice often means working outside the bounds of existing institutions that perpetuate the marginalization of individuals, families, and their communities.

How do communities redefine political engagement and organize themselves to address the marginalization imposed by systems of power? What lessons can we learn from past and present autonomous organizing and social movements?
