I am the convener of an all volunteer community based organization dedicated to educating and advocating for the rights of LGBT people in the Black community. For us on the ground, it is difficult to locate resources and persons who can articulate the needs of the larger Black LGBT community while providing valuable policy resource materials. We look to the National Black Justice coalition as the ground grounded and solid in the delivery of materials that we need to advocate and educate at the grass roots level. In turn, we as a grass root organization have the ability to have our voices heard through NBJC because they function in D.C. and can speak directly to national elected officials and policy makers. In the NBJC, we also find a foundation for our effort to place ourselves as Black LGBT people in the context of the needs and issues that effect the larger Black community. This representation is our priority and we share it with them. We believe that the existence of the National Black Justice Coalition is crucial to our functioning and to having the our needs projected to a larger audience.
