Abstract: 
It is now popular to speak about intersectional analyses of oppression and collaboration among social justice organizations. However, how many organizations or movements really walk the walk across ideological lines? Yet, it is only the unity of the oppressed peoples of the world that will ensure freedom for all. This weekend we will attempt to facilitate conversations that interrogates the intersections of justice in Palestine, Black Justice & Liberation, Migrant and Immigration rights, Water Justice such as (Flint, Palestine and Fighting against The Black Snake Islamophobia, political prisoners and of trumps regime. The interconnecting thread of these varied movements is the push for justice. It is hoped that by turning a critical lens to the intersections of varied movements for justice, specific and concrete steps towards an integrated plan that is realistic and implementable will be developed that will move those who are marginalized towards freedom. In short, do our lives really matter? when following the conversation Please use: #Black4Palestine #Ferguson2Palestine #FreePalestine #TakeBackPride #NotOneMore #NoDAPL #NoBanNOWall #Vison4BlackLives #Arabs4BlackPower #EndCapitalism #ConnectingUsTogether #DDPalestine
