Thank for posting. I always appreciate when people decenter and share the spotlight. Perhaps a bit more racially diverse group would be nice to see. On top of Phoenix’s predilection for making “local heroes,” Phoenix media outlets also overwhelmingly concentrate their attention on young white talent. This list, though well-intended, is no exception. I would love to see our local leaders, and city in general, recognize the innovative talent of our Latino/a, Black, and Indigenous visionaries. And there are hundreds.

Like what you read? Give Mary Stephens a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
