Research for Action, Action for Change: A Community Dialogue

This community dialogue will begin with its starting point discussing the two papers Glisch-Sánchez has written as a part of allgo‘s Brown Paper Series. The papers were inspired by and draw upon the details and subsequent lessons learned from the tragic murders of Norma & María Hurtado in April 2011. Using these papers as a starting point we will discuss the daily social harms queer folks of color face, especially focusing on queer women of color, in particular on the cases of Kristene Chapa and Mollie Olgin (two Chicana lesbians who were attacked, one murdered, in Portland, TX) and the most recent one involving the murders of Crystal Jackson and Britney Cosby. The dialogue will end with a consideration of what are practical strategies for social transformation that results in tangible increases in safety for queer communities of color.

“Hate” Crime and Queer People of Color by David Glisch-Sanchez

Bearing Witness to and Learning from a Tragedy by David Glisch-Sanchez

 

 

David Glisch-Sánchez is a doctoral candidate in the Dept. of Sociology at the University of Texas at Austin. He is currently working on a dissertation entitled “Listen to what your jotería is saying”: Queer Latin@s Confronting Social Harm, Seeking Justice that seeks to understand the nature of social harm and how queer Latin@s are experiencing it and as a result seek to create spaces of (relative) safety and healing. Before going back to graduate school, he was a full-time organizer in the state of Wisconsin working on issues pertaining to access to higher education and campus climate/safety, especially relating to sexual violence and hate crimes.
