Amplify Their Voices!

August 9 @ 12:00 pm

**The event date has changed! We will be having the event on AUGUST 9 at 12 PM since we are working on finding more performers and making sure our logistics are solid!!! :)** Nothing else about the event has changed!
This event is to honor, celebrate, and amplify the voices of black women and the black LGBTQ+ community! My name is Rachel Thurman, and some other students and I have put together this event. The event will not only be a space to raise awareness about the ongoing fight for black lives in the United States, but also a place where we will have performances of all kinds to express the thoughts and experiences of black women/members of the LGBTQ+ community. We will have speakers and performers from a multitude of backgrounds to help spread the important message: black lives matter!

It is important that we take time to remember that the lives of black women and black members of the LGBTQ+ community matter! And it is also important to amplify black voices in any way possible! We hope that this event will be a wonderful celebration of voices that can be shared.

We have also been raising money for two great organizations that can benefit the black LGBTQ+ community (The LGBTQ Freedom Fund & the Marsha P Johnson Institute). We have passed our original goal, but these initiatives deserve so much more!
