Scholarship. Intention. Praxis.

Our Mission:

Defund the bigots. Liberate the classroom. Abolish the ivory tower.

Our Vision:

Accountable and justice-centered power that looks like us and shares our values.

This virtual collective is organized and facilitated by junior women of color political scientists. We come from different subfields, universities, backgrounds, and academic ranks. We refuse to reproduce neoliberal or diversity-based styles that lead to nepotism and the concentration of power with status quo academics. We do not have a centralized or a hierarchical power structure, our members’ input has equal weight to those of the facilitators. Our facilitators are determined by time and interest, rather than appointment.

I am deliberate and afraid of nothing.
