NATIONAL BLACK JUSTICE COALITION INC
November 11, 2012
Black bisexual poet and intellectual June Jordan once said, "We are the ones we have been waiting for." I feel that The National Black Justice Coalition, under the leadership and guidance of Sharon Lettman-Hicks, truly embodies this quote. NBJC is what the Black LGBT community has been waiting for. I have never been more inspired and empowered by an organization than I have been by NBJC. There is something about Sharon's visionary leadership, and her accessible team, that sparked a fire inside of me. I can truly say that 2012 has been one of the most powerful years of my life, in terms of social and political activism, and I have NBJC to thank for a large part of that. NBJC has consistently provided members of the Black LGBT community, and our allies, opportunities to let our voices be heard and to serve as vessels of change in our various communities. The White House meeting for emerging LGBT leaders, Out on the Hill conference for Black LGBT activists and advocates, and the organizations many efforts to harness the power of the Black LGBT community, are just a few examples of how NBJC stands out in a dynamic way. I recently had the opportunity to work with NBJC to secure marriage equality in the state of Maryland. I can't begin to state how amazing this experience was, and how much support NBJC gave its volunteers and supporters. This is an organization that operates with compassion, care, truth, knowledge, and love. I can't speak for others, but I know that NBJC is the organization that I have been waiting for.
