Here’s the gist: in America (North and South), as well as Australia and other colonized nations, if you’re not an indigenous person, you live on stolen land. We start our meetings by, among other things, asking where people are from, and asking them to acknowledge the indigenous history of the land they live on.

June is Pride Month around the world. We have collected some resources for the Drupal community around what Pride is, why it is still necessary and what Pride and 2SLGBTQQIA+ (Two-spirited, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, and beyond--see below for more on acronyms!) rights look like globally.
This post is not intended to cover all subjects, but to serve as a starting point and resource for folks who want to educate themselves about queer individuals, culture and rights.

Do you identify as under-represented or marginalized? Have you thought: I wish more people like me were giving talks at Drupal events? Or: Why is there no one like me on this panel?
Have you thought about speaking at a meetup or conference but haven’t been able to think of a topic? Feel like you don’t think you know anything worth speaking about? Feel like you’re not an expert in anything so who would listen to you anyway? Or the opposite problem… Do you have too many ideas and don’t know which one to pick? We're planning a training *just for you*.

Last week we had a great group of volunteers representing Drupal Diversity and Inclusion at DrupalGovCon. Ruby Sinreich and Dori Kelner co-presented a session to help people understand the challenges we face as a community and what DDI is doing about it.

Wondering what Drupal Diversity & Inclusion is planning for DrupalCon Nashville? Here’s a comprehensive list of our activities
Thursday, May 5, 2017
As of this writing, our #diversity-inclusion slack channel has 428 members. When I started the Drupal Diversity & Inclusion Group after DrupalCon New Orleans, I hoped that it would become something that people rallied behind and got involved with, but I didn’t set any long-term strategic plans. We grew slowly over the first ~9 months or so, and had a growth explosion in the last few months.

This year at DrupalCon, the Drupal Diversity & Inclusion Working Group will have a booth in the exhibit hall. We plan to have a fun and engaging activity for visitors, which will involve taking their photo and printing it out with an imposed filter that says “This is what a Drupalist looks like!” or similar. We plan to hang these photos as a collage behind our booth, post them to instagram, and offer a copy to each visitor. We want to show how diverse the Drupal community is with a fun and striking visual.

The Drupal Diversity working group was established in June 2016 after DrupalCon New Orleans. We began meeting regularly and in our ~6 months of activity and we have accomplished a lot.
