It is our great pleasure to share with you the first volume of the JFDE published under new editorial leadership. Within this issue, we share the work of a diverse group of scholars whose research reflects the reimagined focus and scope of the JFDE. Collectively these works challenge deficit and racist ideologies that perpetually surround historically marginalized families, parents, and communities. We hope that these pieces serve as a reminder for JFDE readers to continue engaging in practices, research, and work that creates equitable, collectivist, liberatory, and humanizing spaces with and alongside historically marginalized families, parents, and communities.

Welcome to the JFDE!



We would like to warmly welcome you to the Journal of Family Diversity in Education.

In addition to being a reader, please consider serving as a reviewer and submitting your work to the journal.

Monica Miller Marsh, Ph.D. and Tammy Turner-Vorbeck, Ph.D.
