Y’all know I have much love for National Black Justice Coalition to the point that I have collaborated with them on panel discussions, was invited to one of their retreats, Have been a panelist and participant in both of their NBJC The Black Institutes at Creating Change Houston and Denver, and like to keep up with and post news about upcoming NBJC events.
One of the news items I missed while I was in the process of moving and trying to get my internet access back on track was the December 10, 2014 unveiling of NBJC’s Black LGBTQ/SGL Leaders to Watch.
December 10 happened to be NBJC’s 11th birthday, and it was that date they chose to launch this new initiative.
Two of those leaders to watch on this inaugural list, Brandon Mack and Michael C Webb, Jr come from H-town. There are also young trans leaders on this list like L’lerret, Toni-Michelle and Cherno.
And as y’all probably guessed I know and have worked with more than a few peeps on the list at different times on different projects and events.
Speaking of events, if you are in the Washington DC area or have some time to get there for it, Emerging Leaders Day at the White House is happening on February 23.
Start saving the date for OUT on the Hill. The Black LGBTQ Leadership summit is one of my favorite events and the 2015 edition of it will take place September 16-19.
Congratulations to everyone who was named to the NBJC 100 Leaders To Watch List, and it will be interesting to see who makes the 2015 list.
