NY ORGANIZATIONS SPONSOR HATE CRIMES RALLY & MEMORIAL FOR MICHAEL SANDY

Black SGL and LGBT organizers and activists vowed to hold a rally on this coming Monday to demand an end to hate violence in the city and to hold city leaders accountable. The rally is scheduled to take place at 5 p.m. Monday, October 16 at New York City Hall . The rally is being sponsored by People of Color In Crisis, the New York State Black Gay Network, Gay Men of African Descent, the New York City Anti-Violence Project and the National Black Justice Coalition.
"How many more black gays and lesbians have to be beaten, killed or attacked in New York before we rise up and do something about it?" noted author and NBJC founding Board President Keith Boykin (Pictured) asked in a written statement.

"After Kevin Aviance, Rashawn Brazell, Dwan Prince and Sakia Gunn, we have a responsibility to speak out on their behalf."
NBJC has launched a crime watch and anti-defamation e-hotline. If you have information about a hate crime or anti-gay activity or just want to get involved email us at stop-the-hate@nbjc.org.

The National Black Justice Coalition is a civil rights organization dedicated to empowering Black same-gender-loving, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered people. The Coalition works with our communities and our allies for social justice, equality, and an end to racism and homophobia.
