Young Professionals Board Service Project: February 2024

YPB Service Project Recap: February 2024 

Numerous studies show that Black LGBTQ+ people experience heightened levels of discrimination and difficulty accessing affirming services. In honor of Black History Month, InReach Young Professionals Board (YPB) members took action by researching new Black-led organizations and other organizations focused on serving the Black LGBTQ+ community to add to the free InReach App

Project Highlights

  • 6 YPB members contributed to the project 
  • 10 hours of service contributed by the group
  • 56 new affirming resources identified during the service project for InReach 

“The February micro-service action was meaningful to me as it highlighted intersectionality and the importance of finding resources that cater to multiple aspects of a person’s identity. The Black LGBTQ+ community face increased discrimination and unique challenges, and I loved being able to support this community through finding more resources focused specifically toward them.”  – Annika Bassey, February 2024 Service Project Lead
