We Are More Than A Label

We Are More Than a Label, is a language matters zine created by Fortune community members in collaboration with designer Laura Cerón Melo. It is an appeal for people to learn more about the use of humanizing - person-first - language and suggests word choices when communicating about people affected by the (in)justice system.

Additionally, check Fortune's "Words Matter" page for more information about the importance of using humanizing language.
