Teach-in: Assemble, Advocate & Activate

with Monica Pearl

A look to history and queer theory to help unleash our inner (or not so inner!) activists. Teach-ins were a key ACT UP strategy, enabling people without formal education or previous knowledge of HIV and AIDS – or activism – to become knowledgeable, and share that knowledge with others in order to speak back to power.

One of ACT UP’s slogans was ‘We Are Fighting for Our Lives’; there is so much for today’s activists and organisers to learn from this example as we are fighting now on a spectrum of issues – whether economic justice; inclusion and fair treatment for migrants and refugees; ecological disaster; or the continuing struggles for Indigenous communities and people of colour, women and LGBT people.

Bring your issues; earn your attitude.

With Monica Pearl, University of Manchester and activist in New York's ACT UP.
