Intersected | What is equity?

Hey folks, Intersected has grown large enough to merit its own site! We have transitioned over to our new website,! If you were following my personal blog here for the sake of that racial equity project, please join us over there as well!

I’ll wait. You can look us up there and subscribe. 😉

As an incentive, next week’s post focuses on race in private education, from the viewpoint of a phenomenal math teacher. We have some more guest writers planned for Latin American Heritage Month in September and are looking forward to seeing Intersected continue to grow!

Originally run by Layla, Sophia, and me as a summer project, Sophia has stepped down from Intersected in order to focus on some other responsibilities. We will miss her input but are grateful for the time we spent working together!

Layla and I are continuing with the project and are building a base of guest writers as we forge forward.

At its core, Intersected is a racial equity project operating out of the theory of intersectionality. We value hearing from BIPOC professionals in particular. While we like to provide a depth of information and a dab of reflection, what makes us distinct is the call to action at the end of our posts, since we want readers to be able to take the next step in their communities.

If you are pursuing racial equity, Intersected is the blog for you. 

But what is equity in the first place? It’s not good ol’ “fairness and equality,” which miss the mark. These graphics from pinterest are helpful reminders: 

Thanks for spending time with us at my personal blog site here, and thanks for joining us over at our new site as well! I’ll still write here, but the collaborative Intersected Project can now be found at Thanks for subscribing!
