“This campaign centers marginalized voices that too often get overlooked in the media. Our collaboration with Census Counts inspired us to design stories that are not only inclusive, but also intersectional. We believe that whether you are a Latinx labor organizer from an immigrant family or transgender woman of color on the autism spectrum, being seen in media gives dignity to everyone — not just those who participated in this campaign, but to everyone else who will see themselves in these stories.”, says Ryan Letada
