Focus and Scope

Vision Statement


in:cite is an online space and community for sharing and collecting knowledge by, for, and created with young people. We are guided by critical race, decolonial, feminist, queer, and intersectional approaches. in:cite seeks to dismantle oppressive structures such as white supremacy, sexism, heteropatriarchy, and colonialism, and help animate the work that young people are doing within and across communities to re-imagine and re-fashion just worlds with educators, artists, activists, and scholars.


We call out the ongoing violence enacted by educational institutions and systems across Turtle Island as a manifestation of these oppressive structures, and call upon youth and our adult collaborators to create alternate spaces and communities for education, expression, and activism.


in:citeis a play on words that represents our values as a journal. Cite points to research as the forefront of our journal, and our desire to change exclusionary citational practices. To incite is to set in rapid motion; we aim to incite action. Insight means perception and understanding; we value critical thinking. In site reminds us of our position as youth studying youth issues; we are connected to the work that we do and the land on which we are situated. Finally, we look towards the future; meaningful change is in sight.
