After the great success we had raising money for the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, I wanted to start another fundraiser for Pride Month. I've been thinking a little about how to do this while continuing to hold space and honor the black lives that we have lost.
The National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC) is a civil rights organization dedicated to the empowerment of Black lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and same gender loving (LGBTQ/SGL) people, including people living with HIV/AIDS. NBJC’s mission is to end racism, homophobia, and LGBTQ/SGL bias and stigma. As America’s leading national Black LGBTQ/SGL civil rights organization focused on federal public policy, NBJC has accepted the charge to lead Black families in strengthening the bonds and bridging the gaps between the movements for racial justice and LGBTQ/SGL equality.
Please dedicate a workout of your choice on Sunday, June 28th, to the Black Queer friends in our community who need our support, and contribute a small (or large!) donation to the NBJC. You are an amazing community and together we change the world. Please show up with me! Feel free to tag yourself along with #nbjconthemove and #soulfamforblackpride and show the community you care!
