When I first heard about KICK it was a magazine that I saw at a gay event, years ago. I didn't know that they were still around until (3) years ago and a friend re-introduced me to the organization and the programs they offer. I got to attend a program that was sponsored by them called Live and Learn and this session was on financial planning for gay couples. It was very informative and I got a lot out of that seminar.

I think now that they have a Executive Director, Curtis Lipscomb, new President, Tiffany McLean and Vice President Jeremiah Jones, and have moved into their new office building that will accomodate more people because of the expansion they will be able to have more programs, events, activities for the LGBT community and reach out to a lot more people in our community and really do the work that is so needed.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen this organization grow from a small group into having more members, having more activities and more people attending their activities and events.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would get even more members and oneday extend the invitation for members in other states and open offices in other states.

As President of KICK-The Agency for LGBT African Americans, I am amazed at the growth of our organization. We went from meeting in our Eexecutive Director's home to now preparing for our Grand Opening in our own location.

Being the only woman on the board has not been the challenge that I thought it would be. The men have truly rallied around me and offered me tremendous support in all that I do. This is example of how working together things can be accomplished.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've seen our volunteers really work together to make sure that things are done. Volunteers have assisted us not just in time, but in money. This to me shows a commitment to KICK that we have not seen before.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would do more outreach to our allies. I think in order to eradicate injustice, we need to ALL work together to promote equality.
