Anarchist Ironies

College-educated radicals often have a strong commitment to egalitarian power-sharing in order to “be the change" they want to see in the world. But ironically, some of the very techniques they use to be more inclusive can sometimes backfire, further marginalizing the marginalized people in their groups. Working-class and poor people are especially likely to have negative reactions to elaborate anti-oppression processes, in-group counterculture practices, and jargon. In this session, participants will learn how to recognize and bridge activist class culture differences in social justice groups.
