OUR teaM


Priya + Winona

We traveled to all 50 states to gather stories from over 500 incredible human beings about how race, culture, and intersectionality have impacted their lives. We couldn’t have done it without these amazing humans. Thank you to our incredible advisors, donors, hosts, and everyone who was courageous enough to share their story. Below, meet the team members who worked directly on the book with us.
