We are planning virtual events and are working with other LGBTQ organizations and allies throughout NJ to take on the important issues of racial inequality and police reform. We know Black Lives Matter – that Black Trans lives matter, that Black LGBTQ+ lives matter – and we work to achieve freedom and social transformation to end racism and separatism in New Jersey and across the country- Say his name – George Floyd.
