Past Event

When POC Is Not Enough: Anti-Blackness in the LGBTQ+ Community

Join us for an in-depth program addressing anti-blackness in the LGBTQ+ community and how it affects the ways its members navigate spaces with community, in addition to the way that people show up for each other. The goal of the program is to spark conversations around how folks in the LGBTQ+ community can work to eliminate anti-blackness in their everyday lives, how the LGBTQ+ community can work together to uplift each other regardless of race, gender identity, gender expression or anything else.

The discussion is designed to help people identity anti-blackness and be able to address it. Don't miss this important community program.
