This manifestx, refuses calls to "tone down" by instead toning up. We declare an intersectional present and future for organizational communication, one that embraces fiery language, is undisciplined, arises in relation, destabilizes white righteousness, and will not be silent. There is no time for intersectionality like the present; the time for intersectionality is now.
