That Keeps Pace With The Movement

Meet Our

Authors

As a group of diverse law students, we saw the need for a journal that elevated the voices of minority liberators and gave them a platform to publish on issues that directly impact our communities. We hope this journal will help to keep the movement going.

Tiffany Avila

Jyoti Nanda

Thank you to all our readers—now and in the years to come—who will help us move the values, principles, and ideas in this journal into communities and courtrooms in pursuit of substantive equality and true justice.
