Intersecting National Coalitions
This concluding chapter studies the translation of the frames outlined in chapters 3, 4, and 5 to national coalition-building processes. National coalitions offer unique organizing opportunities and perils inaccessible at the state and local level. The different perspectives of women of color and white activists are invaluable to the development of a social movement. However, when these perspectives reflect the privilege and power of distinct groups along the axes of race, class, and gender within movements and between movements, they must be acknowledged, openly discussed, and evaluated in terms of impact on the leadership of the movement. If this is not accomplished, the movement will fragment into competing factions and undermine its own goals.
