Every day, Black people push culture forward on Instagram. From activists and community builders, to educators and creatives, they embody what it means to inspire, start global trends, create new genres and forms of expression, and use their voices to hold people and companies accountable.

When we established the Instagram Equity team, our goal was to dig deeper into the concerns raised by marginalized communities on Instagram. Over the past few months, our team has been building on the foundation established last summer to create a more equitable platform.
