Missouri Developmental Disabilities Council Intersectionality Statement

Intersectionality consists of the many identities that make us who we are. Knowing and seeking to understand them gives a better picture of who we are.

It is important to remember that:

  • Some identities are visible while others are not.
  • Characteristics like race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability, class, occupation and others can make up a person's identity.
  • These identities have the most impact in the areas in which we are marginalized.

Recognizing intersectionality gives us an important tool to understand each other.
