IGNITING THE POWER OF BLACK SAME GENDER LOVE

Topic For Friday, July 3rd, 2015:

Now That We've Found Love, What are We Gonna Do With It?

HAVE WE FOUND LOVE?  WHAT DO WE DO NEXT?
In the most extraordinary of ironies, in the same week that we celebrate the earthshaking Civil and Human Rights paradigm shift of Marriage Equality, many of us stand stupefied and horror-stricken at the devastating Human and Civil Rights throwback of a white supremacist Black church massacre.

- What does that say about where we've come, and where we have yet to go?

- How do we balance our Blackness and our same gender loving, gay, and bi-ness?  Or, do we have to?

- How, if at all, does our Blackness influence our expression of our sexuality, and our capacity to love and partner each other in committed relationships, let alone marriages?

- If BLACK LIVES REALLY DO MATTER, how do we account for the continuing disparities between ourselves and our heterosexual family members?

The Gatekeepers Collective Community Action Announcement

In the wake of repeated acts of violence perpetrated against Black People by the police across America, on Saturday, July 11th, 2015, @ 2:00 PM The Gatekeepers Collective will participate in a community unification action.



We will distribute the small New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU) pamphlet titled What To Do If You’re Stopped By the Police to educate the Harlem community on how to protect themselves during an encounter with the NYPD.  It tells you what to do if:
1) you are stopped, questioned, and/or frisked

2) you are stopped in a car

3) the police come to your home, or

4) if you arrested and taken to a police station.

Community members will gather at JMG’s Safe Space (@ 730 Riverside Drive, Ste. 9E) for a briefing and distribution of the pamphlets.

In various groups, we will proceed to the 145th Street and St. Nicholas Ave. (A,B,C,D); 145th Street and Lenox Ave. (3); 125th Street and St. Nicholas Ave. (A,B,C,D); and the 125th Street and Lenox Ave. (2,3) subway stations for approximately 60 minutes to distribute the pamphlets.

Please join us in this critically important action.
Please contact Dr. John “Martey” Young at 347-310-1794, DoctorJohnYoung@gmail.com if interested in participating.


PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!
