Overview of the project they are working on right now that includes the impact the project is making.

MixedLife.net is a platform for multiracial creators and content dedicated to exploring and redefining what it means to be mixed race. Through art, writing, interviews, and more our goal is to create more conversations about the mixed identity, a growth space for mixed folx, and a reservoir of content from mixed creators around the globe.
