SUZANNE PHARR


Suzanne Pharr, Southern queer feminist and anti-racist organizer and strategist, approaches social justice work through understanding oppressions as both systemic and intersectional in their makeup and impact and then developing strategies that are inclusive of all affected. In 1981, she founded the Women’s Project in Arkansas with the goal of eliminating sexism and racism through dismantling systems of violence and economic justice. Her work has been with multi-racial, multi-issued organizations: co-founder Southerners on New Ground, director of the Highlander Center, and founding member of the Southern Movement Assembly.
