The National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC) is a civil rights organization dedicated to the empowerment of Black le***an, gay, bisexual, transgender and q***r (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.

The arrest of Black LGBTQ+ Lawmaker Rep. Park Cannon , who was arrested for fighting to protect her constituents is unacceptable.

“Anyone concerned about and committed to democracy should be outraged. We demand that all charges against Rep. Cannon be immediately dropped. She is a hero and is owed an apology. The business of the General Assembly is her business and she has every right to Georgia’s unconstitutional new voter suppression law cannot stand – and we will work to ensure that SB202 is repealed or overturned.”

We couldn't have said it better than our Executive Director David J. Johns and friend Amber Whittington

#Repost: @MrDavidJohns

1). Why is Lil’ girl talking about things she knows nothing about when she should be recording an album or minding the business that pays her.
2) What explains the perverse fascination that some grown ass adults (who purport to be Cis and not-q***r) have with children, their genitalia, and the socially constructed identities/established communities they may become members of? Riddle me this.
3) Do y’all like conflating things because the matters are too complex for you to meaningfully process or do you think there’s humor in it? Either way, to conflate a child’s identity development and management process to their genitalia misses the point that it’s often not about genitalia (there are a diverse range of ways to be just about everything and this seems to be lost on those speculating about q***r experiences).
4) finally, why do people who say a lot about things they know nothing about get airtime to display their wanton ignorance? What is especially bothersome are the frequent offenders who spend so much time thinking about and talking about our community it makes members of the community really wonder why!?!

That’s all Ima say at present because my sister @amberscloset said everything that needs to be said in this video. Please watch & share (and if you know either of them tell them to do and be better). -Be blessed #ReadBooks #StayInYourLane #MindYourBusiness #DoBetter #BeBetter #TheMoreYouKnow

WE'RE ASKING that social-justice organizations join the NAACP in their lawsuit against Donald J. Trump after the Senate FAILED to convict Trump. There's no reason why the ACLU, Black Lives Matter organization, and OTHER social justice organizations can't join as plaintiffs in this SAME lawsuit. The lawsuit says that Trump violated the Ku Klux Klux Act, incited insurrection, and attempted suppression of American voters (especially black voters). This lawsuit includes the Proud Boys, Mr. Rudy Guiliani, and other racist organizations that worship and adore Trump. PLEASE CONTACT THE NAACP AND BECOME PLAINTIFFS ON THIS LAWSUIT. [Watch this YouTube video for more info - BELOW]:
IT'S TIME TO TAKE TRUMP TO COURT! Donald J. Trump was put on trial by a politically biased U.S. Senate with Republicans who equate acquitting Trump with exonerating the GOP / Republican Party. What is needed is indicting and dragging Trump into a FEDERAL COURT on the charges of trying to extort the Secretary of State of Georgia (Brad Raffensperger) AND for inciting his followers to commit insurrection at the nation's Capitol. What's needed are the following organizations/agencies to unite and bring these charges against Trump: The ACLU, NAACP, Black Lives Matter, The Lincoln Project, The Democratic Party, Latinos for Biden, and many others (a class-action lawsuit). Then Trump needs to face additional CRIMINAL charges in separate courts for income tax evasion AND being a s*xual predator like Harvey Weinstein (via the Manhattan D.A.'s Office AND other attorneys). IF Trump is in jail/prison, he won't be able to promote himself on his own TV show or run for political office again.

An Article Reveals New Warriors Confront San Francisco GAY RACISM! Recently Founded is the BAY AREA Q***R 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 G**s & 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!
