Please log in to the UDP website to submit your work by September 1, 2022.  This special issue is seeking work that not only addresses the vast diversity embedded within this group, but also how these identities intersect with the issues of Race, Racism, & White Privilege, Biracial & Multiracial Identities & Communities, Immigration & Displaced Identities, and specific attention to the Black & Asian/Pacific Islander Co-conspirators/Alliances. We welcome empirically based scholarship, personal reflections, creative pieces, and action-oriented curricular ideas, for this special issue.
