Socially loud! Can you hear us?



The National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC), the nation’s leading Black LGBT civil rights organization, is proud to partner with the U.S. Small Business Administration for the Oakland/Bay Area stop of an economic empowerment tour for LGBT communities of color: Many Faces. One Dream. (MFOD). MFOD will be held on April 21-22, 2014 at the Oakland Marriott City Center.

The conference will bring together 150 LGBT people of color business owners across the Bay Area.  For only $25 per person, you will receive more than $500 worth of valuable training and resources. During this two-day conference, attendees will be divided into two tracks: “Starting Your Business” and “Taking Your Business to the Next Level.” In the first track, training will be provided on the key elements of a business plan, loans, marketing, and SBA’s program and services. The second track will be geared toward LGBT entrepreneurs who are currently in business but want to expand and grow.

Despite the challenges gay and transgender people face, LGBT communities of color represent a growing segment of aspiring entrepreneurs and business owners. Rich with ideas and talent, LGBT men and women are creating and leading their own companies. Many Faces. One Dream. expands the conversation from economic security to economic empowerment and bankability.

See you April 21st!
