Our Mission

Our mission is based on the fact that today we live in a time where the lines that separate issues of race, ethnicity, class, sexuality, gender, and ability are rapidly moving closer together. Intersectionality is no longer an academic insight, but a lived reality for those who often experience marginality. As an increasingly diverse society the meanings of legal issues can longer be isolated to sound bites like “blacks vs. whites,” “liberal vs. conservative,” or “women vs. men.” We, at?The?Modern American, have initiated a discussion about the issues that affect systemically marginalized people, marginalized experiences and voices, as well as the complexity within marginalized communities themselves, with a track-record of publishing articles offering unique perspectives and analysis of diversity and the law. It is our belief that issues of race, ethnicity, class, sexuality, gender and ability are lens that are not reserved to any particular ideology—our philosophy is to provide an incisive and critical look into these issues from a variety of perspectives.
