POC (for People of Color) Today began as a project for people of color who found themselves frightened, dismayed, or angered by the election of the Trump administration to office in the United States. Over the course of time, however, the project has evolved into something bigger.
We’re a team of storytellers and culturists whose mission is “…two-fold. On the one hand, our media coverage naturally challenges mainstream media to meaningfully improve its coverage of issues concerning the growing diversity of our country. On the other, our stories empower our own communities by placing POC at the forefront of the conversation. We are, after all, the future of democracy in the United States.”
