Project Description/Abstract

While extensive research exists examining the discrimination experiences of specific marginalized groups, little work has been done comparing experiences of disenfranchisement across groups. This exploratory ongoing qualitative study will compare and contrast the discrimination experiences and their impact on approximately 170 members from seven different marginalized groups. Thematic analysis will be used to examine the data. Differences in marginalization experiences and their impact that are identified will improve clinical and advocacy efforts when serving members from these groups. Information regarding similarities in disenfranchisement and its impact will be useful in informing broad-based coalitions focused on a common human rights agenda cutting across group identities.
