We recognize that this is a limited list and that there is so much more out there to celebrate. We’ve been building a much broader global list, focusing in particular on networks and voices that do this work but may not advertise it as such or promote it far beyond their community. We are actively speaking with people to learn more, so please reach out (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’d like to talk. We’d love to hear from you.
