Our Mission

We bring you underreported stories directly from people in communities most impacted by structural inequities. We partner with scholar-historians, experts and community members to deliver cutting-edge analysis that will inform your conversations and actions at work, schools, home and beyond.

Through various mediums and channels, we work to create analysis that enables people to see both their pain and hope reflected, and to make meaning for broader change.
