Why BIPOC Apostrophe?
The reason for the name “BIPOC Apostrophe” is that an apostrophe is a punctuation mark used to indicate possession, which can be used for intentional exclusion or intentional inclusion. The foundation seeks to recognize and address historical and ongoing exclusion of BIPOC individuals, while also actively working towards greater inclusion and equity.
