Download We Are More Than a Label, a language matters zine created by Fortune community members in collaboration with designer Laura Cerón Melo and MoMA PS1. 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.
