Description

Come & Enjoy a Mimosa on Me!

THE BUILD YOUR BRAND: NETWORKING BRUNCH IS DESIGNED FOR THE LGBTQ OF COLOR COMMUNITY AND OUR ALLIES.THE MAIN OBJECTIVE OF THE BRUNCH IS TO CREATE A SAFE SPACE WHERE COMMUNITY AND BUSINESS ARE ABLE TO COEXIST. WE ARE LOOKING TO CREATE ACTION BASED SOLUTIONS (ALONGSIDE THE CITY’S BUSINESS & COMMUNITY PROFESSIONALS) TO HELP BUILD COMMUNITY PARTNERS, DECREASE THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE, COMBAT HOUSING INSTABILITY, DESTROY THE SCHOOL TO PRISON PIPELINE, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, IMPROVE THE OVERALL SAFETY OF THE CITY.

BEFORE ENTERING THE WORKFORCE, OUR LGBTQ AND GENDER NONCONFORMING STUDENTS FACE HOSTILE ENVIRONMENTS IN THE SCHOOL SYSTEM. 81.9% WERE VERBALLY HARASSED BECAUSE OF THEIR SEXUAL ORIENTATION, AND 63.9% BECAUSE OF THEIR GENDER EXPRESSION. 38.3% WERE PHYSICALLY HARASSED BECAUSE OF THEIR SEXUAL ORIENTATION, AND 27.1% BECAUSE OF THEIR GENDER EXPRESSION. 8.3% WERE PHYSICALLY ASSAULTED BECAUSE OF THEIR SEXUAL ORIENTATION, AND 12.4% BECAUSE OF THEIR GENDER EXPRESSION. WE LOOK FOR YOUR SUPPORT TO ENSURE THIS DOES NOT CONTINUE AS OUR COMMUNITY MATRICULATES INTO THE WORKFORCE.
