DOWNLOAD: Federal Government Fails in NBJC Report Card

As our nation grapples with celebrating community diversity as a strength, and where people from diverse backgrounds work better together to tackle the seemingly intractable problems that prevent us from thriving,  it's important to address the unique needs of marginalized individuals who are oppressed because of race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation.

Today NBJC released a compelling, comprehensive “2018 NBJC Federal Government Report Card”, outlining the performance of all three branches of the federal government on a number of issues relevant to Black LGBTQ and Same-Gender-Loving (SGL) people.



  • The Trump Administration’s dismissal of all members of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS;

  • The Trump Administration’s executive order citing ‘religious freedom’ as a license to discriminate against LGBTQ/SGL parents;

  • The Trump Administration’s rescinding of past guidance that protected transgender workers by civil rights laws;

  • The Supreme Court ruling on Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission Supreme Court ruling that allows discrimination against LGBTQ people; and

  • A grade chart outlining every member of Congress’ vote on a number of relevant pieces of legislation including the American Healthcare Act of 2018, Betsy Devos’ confirmation, and the  attempted repeal of the Affordable Care Act.
