Our focus is to advocate for the civil and human rights of LGBTQ individuals. The Akron NAACP will explore priorities that include a strong yet diverse representation while creating dialogue to explore various topics.

Chair: Steve Arrington

The Black LGBTQ Community

The Akron NAACP will explore and brainstorm solutions to issues in the Black LGBTQ community, including:

  • Barriers and stigma

  • Lack of acceptance and inclusion

  • Low representation in the community

  • Lack of understanding of LGBTQ rights and laws

Effective change is dependent on the active participation of all citizens, and Black LGBTQ voices are important to build and sustain a stronger Akron area.
