The New Now: Working Together for Social Change

The recent victories related to the rights of LGBT people have been astounding. The success on LGBT issues, especially marriage equality, is often attributed to a coordinated, unwavering, laser-sharp focus on changing policy at both the state and federal levels. So it is interesting that a different approach is also evolving where LGBT advocates and organizations are working to address multiple and overlapping issues, such as immigrant rights, worker issues, and criminalization. The move towards understanding and creating strategies that reflect an intersectional approach is increasingly seen as the new frontier of LGBT rights.
