We want to honor all those who have come before us in doing this work and who continue to shine a light to lead the way. Honor to the Indigenous communities, the original stewards and protectors of the lands and waters on which these institutions are located.
Honor to the Black folks whose blood, sweat, tears, and labor have gone into building up these institutions, often under enslavement, without pay or acknowledgement.
Honor to the queer folk, the non-binary folk, the trans folk, and the women who have been doing this labor unsung for so long.
Honor to Victor Hugo Green whose original idea spurred our own.
Finally, special thanks to all those making this project possible through support, work, ideas, and finances: Trevor A. Dawes, April Hathcock, Jen Brown, Jenny Ferretti, and Sofia Leung, among others.
