On March 19, 2010. People of Color Organize went live. 570 posts and 102,000 visits later, we’re celebrating our first year of publishing.
It has been gratifying hearing from so many old and new friends. During this last 12 months, I hope we have helped with your understanding, education and conversations. It’s been an honor and privilege to walk with you, hear from you, engage in debate and learn.
On a personal note, it’s been a real joy to share valuable information and give a chance to highlight the voices of people of color. Our editorial board — Ikonoklast, Zari, Rowland and me — has done a solid job, I think, and the best is yet to come.
Over the next year, you should see the following:
- People of Color Organize! will be adding an advisory group to review content, offer contacts and give guidance to our efforts. Lorenzo Komboa Ervin will be working with this body. Please get in contact if you wish to be considered or would like to nominate someone to serve.
- A page on how you can be involved more is coming shortly.
- More content and new podcasts.
