Intersectional solidarities and coalition building
This event is the second in the Sanctuary: What next? series and centres on building intersectional solidarities and coalitions for precarious status residents in cities. Drawing together the expertise of organisers and activists from USA, Canada and UK this event addressed how we can build progressive politics across groups and individuals who identify in very different ways but suffer harms and state violence through harsh migration policies. In particular the event reflected on building coalitions in contexts of resource scarcity and increasing societal divisions. Speakers reflected on how to centre those who are most marginalised in our campaigns and how to build political consensus at local, municipal, state/provincial and national/federal levels.
