How to Engage your Community
Importantly, while we organize around Black Liberation, we support efforts to liberate all marginalized groups and folks at the intersections. The Yarn Mission is organized on the values of intersectionality and is anti-oppressive at its core. We hold that it is essential to acknowledge that oppression creates hierarchies according to many identities. We also recognize that all individuals sit at the intersection of multiple identities.
These identities cannot be separated, although various elements may be more influential in certain situations. This means that we do not organize solely around race, just as we do not organize solely around class, gender or sexuality. Rather we consider and learn about the role that various identities play and strive for inclusivity and accessibility.
