NBJC OUT On The Hill Host Committee Gearing Up For Biggest Summit Ever

I can testify to how much work is involved in putting together a conference like OUT On The Hill, having done it while organizing the 2005 and 2006 Transsistahs-Transbrothas ones in Louisville. 

The National Black Justice Coalition has done a masterful job at the planning and execution of this event over the last two years and the 2012 one looks to be the biggest one yet.  As the reputation of the quality of it grows and word of mouth and publicity about OUT on The Hill continues to expand amongst Black LGBT people and our allies about this unapologetically Black conference of Black trans and SGL leaders, it's also time that the OUT On The Hill Host Committee get a little love as well.

OUT on the Hill Host Committee members have been working closely with other distinguished Black LGBT leaders and activists to contribute their time and talents to the event and encourage others to do the same. Host Committee members are integral to making OUT on the Hill a success.              

This year's OUT on the Hill Host Committee members include: Shaun Allende, UDC OUTLAW; Brandynicole Brooks, DC Child and Family Services Agency; Ashlee Davis, Emerging Leader; Rev. MacArthur Flournoy, Human Rights Campaign (HRC); Robby Gregg, Diversity Thought Leader; Monique Hall, DCI Group; Rev. Cedric Harmon, Many Voices; Rev. Candy Holmes, Metropolitan Community Churches (MCC); Huston Inniss, National Coalition for LGBT Health; Bakari Jones, Bois of Baltimore; Katheryn King, U.S. Bank; Stacey Long, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force; Samantha Master, Morgan State University; Aisha Moodie-Mills, Center for American Progress; Rev. Darlene Nipper, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force; Donna Payne, Human Rights Campaign (HRC); Jeffrey Richardson, DC Mayor's Office of LGBT Affairs; Maya Rupert, National Council for Lesbian Rights (NCLR); Twaun Samuel, Office of Congresswoman Maxine Waters; Andre Wade, National Alliance to End Homelessness (NAEH); Rev. George Walker, Gay and Lesbian Leadership Institute/Victory Fund; Lauren Waters, Emerging Leader; and Isaiah Wilson, Office of Congressman Steve Rothman.   

Thanks Host Committee for the work you collectively put in to make OUT On The Hill a success and I'm looking forward to seeing y'all on Tuesday.
