What does BIPOC mean?

BIPOC stands for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. More specifically, when I use BIPOC, I mean that I will donate to organizations that serve people of African / Black/ Caribbean, Arab, South Asian, Asian & Pacific Islander, Latinx/e, and Native/Indigenous descent.


What does LGBTQ+ mean?

LGBTQ+ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer, Intersex, Two Spirit, Gender Non-Conforming, and Questioning individuals.
