ANOTHER WORLD IS POSSIBLE
In December 2020 for 16 days of activism against gender-based violence, The Rights Collective hosted a series of conversations along the theme of ‘Another World is Possible’. We sought to explore and imagine possibilities for our future beyond the current interlocking systems of oppression in which we live.
We are ever grateful for Black, working class and Dalit radical thought and critical enquiry, especially by womxn, which leads the way in imagining and building a better future. We hope these conversations will allow us some space to also imagine our role, as South Asians in the diaspora, in creating the liberated world we want to see. Watch the recordings here.
