Queer Radical Past Conference

In Part 2 of Professor Dean Spade's keynote address at the Queer Radical Past Conference Feb 2018, he discusses the institutional forces that push movements for social change towards meaningless or even harmful reforms as they become mainstreamized. His experience as a long-time activist and organizer with the Sylvia Rivera Law Project and various movements is very practical. The phenomena of the system offering fake reforms affects not just in the LGBT movement, but also the Left. He stresses the need for discernment as we approach organizing to avoid falling into the traps the system sets and proproses some criteria for evaluating which struggles to take up and how to decide whether reforms the system is willing to make are sufficient.
