TeamChild’s Youth Advisory Board seeks to find a systemic way to change the approach to bullying and harassment that can reduce the incidents that make some students unsafe, while increasing the services that can allow other students to stay in school without causing further harm.
Intersectionality describes the cross sections of one’s identities – how multiple identities interact and form emergent realities. It looks at bigger systems of oppression such as racism, sexism, homophobia, and asks that we identify where and how they interact with each other. What does it do when you add to the identifiers of race and gender the identity of a young person, who has fewer rights than an adult in seeking their own health care, school placement, or living arrangement?
