The National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC) is a civil rights organization dedicated to the empowerment of Black lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people, including people living with HIV/AIDS. NBJC’s mission is to end racism, homophobia, and LGBTQ bias and stigma. As America’s leading national Black LGBTQ civil rights organization focused on federal public policy, NBJC has accepted the charge to lead Black families in strengthening the bonds and bridging the gaps between the movements for racial justice and LGBTQ equality. Since 2003, NBJC has provided leadership at the intersection of national civil rights groups and LGBTQ organizations, advocating for the unique challenges and needs of the African American LGBTQ community that are often relegated to the sidelines. NBJC envisions a world where all people are fully-empowered to participate safely, openly and honestly in family, faith and community, regardless of race, class, gender identity or sexual orientation.

Mission: NBJC's mission is to end racism and homophobia.

*Goals enters the chat*

It's not enough to have a rainbow (insert item here). Do we have policies and representation in place that ensures the safety, happiness, wholeness and freedom for ALL?

If not, return to sender. We want liberation, not a rainbow flavored latte.

Angel Unique, a 25-year-old Black transgender woman, was shot to death in Memphis, Tennessee, on October 25. NBJC released a statement saying: "Let this be a reminder that there is still so much work to do to respond to the enduring violence that disproportionately impacts Black trans women and girls. This work should remain a priority for anyone who purports to value Black lives. It’s important for people to know that this happened; that Angel Unique’s life has been stolen so that one day soon, we don’t have to circulate statements that memorialize members of our community who deserve to live safely, freely.” - David J. Johns

Heads up! Riveting and informative conversation with Senator Pat Spearman and Clerk Ellen Bragg about voting strategically.
An Article Reveals New Warriors Confront San Francisco GAY RACISM! Recently Founded is the BAY AREA QUEER NIGHTLIFE COALITION (BAQNC). Organizers Afrika America, Militia Scunt Towers, Kai Kai Bee Michaels (& Company) sent out a Public Survey—Rated the Results from Worst to Best “Bay Area” Clubs—then Hosted a “Virtual Town Hall Discussion” (this past July 30th) between Patron Responders and Club Reps. The Bottom Worst “Race Violating” Clubs were: Badlands/Toad Hall; Jolene’s; The Eagle; and The Edge. I only discovered this event due to googling other research—so sadly I missed it! Check out This Article and Listen to the Blistering Discussions on the Article’s YouTub link. I “myself”—a longtime Community Artist & Anti-Gay Racism Activist—had stopped going to The Edge! I've had Hideous Ongoing Encounters at Numerous other Clubs! Many know why! This entire thing relates to why so many San Francisco White Gays & People of Color—who are Locked into Those Establishments—remain Absolutely Silent on “Black Lives Matter Issues” (and Gay Racist Attacks on Black LGBTQ Lives Matter Protests). All can believe I personally will be following up!

We propose a 13 Circuit Board Review of Police Involved Shootings/Deaths Panel be established mirroring the US Circuit Court system, broken down as 1st Circuit, 9th Circuit, 12th Circuit, etc., where cases appealed by these circuits are taken directly to the Supreme Court of the United States. We propose each Circuit Board Review of Police Involved Shootings/Deaths Panel be granted the power, influence, decision-making, and appeal authority over all courts across the United States in these matters. We propose each Circuit Board Review of Police Involved Shootings/Deaths Panel be granted the ability to set legal precedent, case law, and policy influence on U.S. law in all regions to cover the millions of Americans in the United States. We propose these 13 Circuit Board Review of Police Involved Shootings/Deaths Panel serve as the final arbiter on all police involved shootings/death cases where court decisions are appealed. We propose random selection of governing Circuit Board Review of Police Involved Shootings/Deaths Panel be conducted annually during the month of January by a lottery process to establish which circuit will hear issues during that calendar year from the 13 jurisdictions within the United States thereby insuring a system of unbiased judgment and elimination of legal prejudice. We propose each Circuit Board Review of Police Involved Shootings/Deaths Panel consist of: 1. Judge, Circuit Appeal 2. Judge, Federal District Court 3. Attorney General 4. District Attorney 5. Attorney, Benjamin Crump 6. ACLU 7. NAACP 8. Black Lives Matter 9. National Action Network (Al Sharpton) 10. Rainbow Coalition (Jesse Jackson) 11. Know Your Rights Camp (Colin Kaepernick) 12. Color of Change 13. My Brother’s Keeper (Barack Obama) 14. National Black Women’s Justice Institute 15. The Trayvon Martin Foundation 16. Representative, George Floyd 17. Black Organizing for Leadership & Dignity (BOLD) We propose all police involved shootings/arrests that results in the death of an unarmed citizen of any race or nationality be accompanied with suspension from work, without pay (unpaid suspension), resulting in the temporary removal of an employee(s) from performing his/her work duties and from receiving pay, until a complete investigation and review of the incident, body cameras, video, use of force policies, and arrest procedures has been conducted. Incidents that clearly depict excessive use of force, unjustified action, and abuse of power are immediately referred to local district attorneys for investigation and initiation of processes that result in arrest, criminal charges, and prosecution. All cases, charges, and investigations warrant summary, judicial, or formal review by the assigned Circuit Board Review of Police Involved Shootings/Deaths Panel. By summary review we mean an executive hearing proceeding, a majority review, other than the full formal review of a Circuit Board Review of Police Involved Shootings/Deaths Panel, hereafter called the Panel, be conducted under A.R.S. § 28-1385(L) or other statute or administrative rule. By formal review, we mean the formal proceedings and convening together of the seventeen (17) member Panel to examine policies and statues, past actions, review evidence and arguments, including legal reasoning, and institute the legal process that ascertains whether the constitutional, civil, or human rights were violated resulting in an order of punishment against that party by judicial determination. By judicial review, we mean the power of the Panel to examine and insure the actions of local government officials, attorney generals, district attorneys, and police chiefs are consistent with state and federal laws on crimes against another person and murder. Any action(s) judged inconsistent with legal precedence throughout the United States will be declared unconstitutional and, therefore, null and void. The Panel maintains jurisdiction to hear, recall, and adjudicate all cases where full legal authority and justice were deemed not to have be served. It is the intent of this body of collective agencies, activists, and individuals that we address and bring to an end the lawless murder, prosecution, incarceration, bias, prejudice, racism, and oppression of Black people and people of color in these United States. We believe all negative forms of prejudice and/or bias are learned and therefore can be unlearned. We believe oppression and injustice are human creations and phenomena and can be undone. We believe systemic oppression exists at the level of institutions (harmful policies and practices) and across structures (education, health, transportation, economy, etc.) that are interconnected and have been reinforced over time. We believe there is an intentional disadvantaging of black people based on identity and skin-color while advantaging members of the so-called dominant group. We bring attention to systemic oppression that has manifest itself in economic, social, political and cultural systems. We intend to fight against and bring an end to institutional racism which are integrated in the policies and practices at the organization or sector level that perpetrates oppression. We intend to fight against and bring an end to structural racism that allows these effects to interact and accumulate across institutions (employment, housing, education, legal systems, law enforcement, etc.). We demand all police officer(s) involved shootings that result in death to black people and persons of color, by use of excessive force, abuse of power, or willful neglect be arrested, charged with a criminal action, and be prosecuted as all other citizens under the constitution. We demand removal of all protections afforded to the “Color of Law.” -Reggie Miller
