I want to help the coalition flourish into great leaders and advocates who serve and address the needs of the Black LGBTQ community. I aim to continue using our influence to uplift voices of our community, especially in spaces where organizations make decisions that impact us without us.

Email me if there is an event, resource, need in the community that we are not addressing, or if you have any thoughts or suggestions on how we can better serve our mission.

I was called to join the coalition because of my desire for a space filled with both activism and community. Leaning into intersectional axes of my race and queer identity has not always been there, so I am ecstatic and grateful to join and learn and grow together.

Working in Behavioral Health and with Social Work partners/agencies, I see how often there isn't Black/LGBTQ+/Peer representation when planning/developing programs and services for our populations. I feel Mental Health is especially important for marginalized people, so I joined to be active in the community to make and build connections to access and create mental health resources for us.
