Is a “vibrant hub of researchers, community leaders, policymakers, artists, and communicators” working to advance “research, policy, and work related to marginalized communities.” Hence, by engaging in an innovative narrative that seeks to re-frame the public discourse around marginality and inclusion and respond to issues that require immediate and long-term action, it “brings together diverse stakeholders to identify and challenge the barriers to an inclusive, just, and sustainable society in order to create transformative change.”
