The Caribbean Equality Project (CEP) was born after a family in Richmond Hill, Queens experienced a hate crime and decided to organize to address that trauma and help empower and heal LGBTQ folks in the community at large.
This year Caribbean activists in Canada reached out to partner with CEP to bring their LGBTQ/Caribbean community activism there as part of a conference, "Breaking Silences", a one-day symposium focused on immigration, HIV/AIDS, family acceptance, faith and the mental health of Caribbean LGBTQ communities, with presentations, panel discussions, and clinics -- including confidential HIV testing and counseling, confidential mental health counseling/intervention, and immigration consultations.
THIS FUNDRAISER IS A CHANCE FOR A REAL, TANGIBLE ACT OF SOLIDARITY TOWARD OUR LGBTQ AND CARIBBEAN COMMUNITY IN QUEENS. The money is to pay for some of the needs of the conference, including food for the $100+ attendees.
Please consider a donation. Even $5 helps!
