At its core, Intersected is a racial equity project operating out of the theory of intersectionality. While we like to provide a depth of information and a dab of reflection, what makes us distinct is the call to action at the end of our posts, since we want readers to be able to take the next step in their communities.

Begun as an idea on a phone call between two best friends, Intersected has grown into a dedicated project. George Floyd was murdered in June 2020, sparking a new awareness of racial inequity in the United States. We wanted to build off that momentum.

We began in the Intersected tab on katelynskyebennett.com, where you can view our archives. Now we’re here on our own platform, and we’re delighted you’ve joined us.

This is the Intersected Project. Here we strive for racial equity. Here we believe in elevating melanated voices through our content and by being considerate of who we invite to write for us.

If you are pursuing racial equity, Intersected Project is the blog for you. Subscribe, interact, and share as you grow.
