SJI and the Portal Project recognize that there are reservoirs of knowledge beyond the academy. We have invited prominent academics as well as respected community-based scholars, researchers and organizers to join us in curated conversation, collaboration, learning and knowledge production over a two-year period from 2021 to 2023. The Portal Project community includes over 100 scholars, artists, organizers and activists from around the country, and several organizational and institutional partners.
