To answer the question, this paragraph in the link explains what that
"We say “intersectionally marginalized" to refer to people of color who
experience intersectionality, that is, the interactions of multiple
systems of oppression. This means we are open to all people of color
with disabilities, trans* people of color, queer people of color, women
of color, class oppressed people of color, etc."
