Intersectionality of Identities with Disability
All of us have more than one identity and more than one way we experience systemic inequalities, so here are resources for people of different races, ethnicities, cultures, LGBTQI identities, and religions (listed in no particular order).
If you want to learn more about the origins of the term "intersectionalities", we encourage you to learn from Kimberlé Crenshaw , who created the term. Also see our other self-care and identity resources.
