(A definition that changes as we better understand the nuances)
We define “people of color” as those who have historically been and continue to be marginalized under white supremacy. We welcome Black, Indigenous, and other creators of color, not to equate their life experiences or neutralize their successes, but to identify common challenges and pool resources to create change in our areas of expertise. We hold a wealth of untapped potential and power that we hope to nurture through building community. Ultimately, however, we recognize that language, culture, and people are always evolving and we embrace the inevitable shifts. The word “color” is elastic and imperfect, but it also leaves room for growth, and that’s why we’ve chosen to use it.
