The word of the day is Kyriarchy

There is no struggle but our collective struggle.

Kyriarchy
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Kyriarchy (“rule by a lord”; from the Greek κύριος/kyrios “lord or master” and αρχή/arche “authority, leadership”) is a social system or set of connecting social systems built around domination, oppression, and submission. The word itself is a neologism coined by Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza to describe interconnected, interacting, and self-extending systems of domination and submission, in which a single individual might be oppressed in some relationships and privileged in others. It is an intersectional extension of the idea of patriarchy beyond gender. Kyriarchy encompasses sexism, racism, economic injustice, and other forms of dominating hierarchy in which the subordination of one person or group to another is internalized and institutionalized.

Aug 24th 2013, Portland Oregon: 50th anniversary of MOW

It’s been 50 years ago since Dr. King’s “I have a dream” speech. I look forward to celebrating, reflecting and connecting with fellow dreamers and agitators at the event. If you are a poet in the area, contact me. I’d like to organize a Poets for Change reading.

  • Music & March meet at Terry Schrunk Plaza. We will March to South Waterfront Park
  • Join us as we honor the spirit of the historic 1963 March on Washington and begin the work of the next 50 years for equality in America!

    Celebrate! Educate! Demonstrate

    Sponsored by Albina Ministerial Alliance Coalition for Justice & Police Reform, Urban League of Portland, NAACP of Portland, ACLU of Portland, Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon, and several labor and other community based organizations.

    Ironically the same issues that compelled the first March, jobs, police brutality, housing, health care, equality are the same pressing issues of today.

    Rally, Speakers & Music starts at 1PM @ South Waterfront Park
