Underrepresented/Marginalized Communities

Our definition of marginalized communities are groups of people who have been pushed to the edge of society due to race, class, ethnicity, gender, or endless other identity-related reasons in the form of not allowing them an active voice, identity, or place in the society. Some individuals identify with multiple marginalized groups, and may experience further marginalization and lack of representation as a result of their intersecting identities.
