This sweet program will be a great introduction to understanding different social identities, and creating a better understanding of what intersectionality is, and its necessity in social justice work. An ice cream bar will be provided for participants to build their own desserts. The toppings for the ice cream will serve as a symbol for the different social identities that each person holds. Using this metaphor, participants will be lead through a discussion of how identities overlap and interact with one another, and some toppings/identities are not as valued, or are appreciated more, than others. Ice cream, you scream, we all scream for intersectionality! Join us!
