Why “Minorities” Report?
Many have commented on our name. Concerned about us labeling ourselves and, in-turn, alienating people that felt they weren’t welcome. This was a bit discouraging but we stuck to our instinct.
“Minorities Report” serves two purposes.
- A play on the title of a sci-fi thriller. Yup, that one.
- A name that shouted representation and diversity on our end.
We are Minorities who Report to all. Besides, we’re all minorities in someway. You just have to look hard enough and try not to miss it.
