Chapter Summary

This chapter is built upon a series of difficult questions: Has the social forum process extended its reach theoretically to think through the complicated gender, sexuality, class, race, ethnicity and national spaces the masses of humanity occupy? How much, in fact, has the still developing social forum process impacted the lives of those most caught up in the logic of neoliberalism and transnational capital? Finally, how much convergence is occurring to create a movement of movements, bringing together scholars and activists, local and global alliances? These issues and others are explored in the chapter. All those who live in the United States reside in a country that abandoned the poorest and most dispossessed black people in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. If for no other reason than this stark moment of dispossession and travesty people must lead with complex theorizing and practice around race, class and gender inequalities.

Keywords: gender inequalities; new Orleans; racism; sexuality; social forum process; working class
