The National LGBTQ Task Force believes that racial justice is central to our aspirations for liberation. During this Day Long Institute, we aim to explore the importance of centering blackness, the role that white people have to play in unlearning racism and how we can work together effectively in our workplaces, faith communities, and school settings. We believe that education, advocacy and leadership development are key components to working effectively in multiracial spaces and within our communities around coalition building work to achieve spaces that are racially just and inclusive.
The art for our Queering Racial Justice Institute was created by Wriply Marie Bennet. She uses her art to uplift her sisters in the black lives/ black transgender lives movement. Read Wriply’s bio and see her full original art for the Institute here. You can also view more of her work here.
