Abstract Title: People of Color Discussion Space
Abstract: Safe spaces are especially important for marginalized groups.  They often provide an opportunity for individuals in the group to utilize their agency to act and speak on their own behalf.  They also aid in creating solidarity among the group.  We propose to create a space for People of Color in physics education research as a session for the 2017 PERC conference.  We envision this session providing an opportunity for People of Color to share stories, articulate their needs as members of the field, and get to know one another.
