  9. Scholars of Color Facebook group
    1. OUR MISSION: To provide a platform for the voices of Scholars of Color who are interested in linguistics/language studies. We aim to address a serious issue: Scholars of Color in language studies need a space where they can connect/network/socialize with other Scholars of Color. This is a space where Scholars of Color can find a system of support with people who intimately understand the way structural racism/colorism in academia and society-at-large impacts us as Scholars of Color.
    2. There are scholars covering all fields of linguistics, and while it is mostly academics, there are also working professionals! For the FB group, make sure to click the request to join button in order to answer the open-ended question: “Do you identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or a Person of Color (BIPOC)? If ‘no’, how do you view your own ethnic/racial identity?”
