Highlights

As a reviewer and coordinator on the Anti-Bias Review Board, I hope to shed some light on the lived experiences of Black people within the continent and diaspora, disabled and neurodivergent individuals, as well as members of the LGBTQ+ community. I explicitly believe that centering the most marginalized is the only way to enact equity.
