Challenges that are created in society by wealth and poverty include oppression, domination, and discrimination. Beyond wealth, a person's level of poverty and privilege can be further affected by their ability, age, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, and sexual orientation. Unfair stereotypes impact those who live in poverty and those who enjoy privilege.


Intersectionality is a sociological theory that studies the relationships among the various identifiers. Despite its importance, intersectionality is not yet a household word. New Yorkers, with all our diversity, struggle to create meaningful interactions between those who live in extreme poverty and those who enjoy abundant privilege. If we don't understand each other, we are bound to mistreat one another. If we cannot empathize with people who are different from ourselves, we miss opportunities to strengthen our community because of thoughtlessness and indifference.


Join the FPA of Metro NY Toastmasters and learn techniques to communicate compassionately with people from varied socioeconomic backgrounds. Sign up today and bring a friend!
