Interim National Director Dominique Morgan!

We’re very glad to announce our new Interim National Director! Based on the strength of his nonprofit leadership experience and commitment to Black & Pink’s organizational longevity, the Board/Leadership Circle voted to appoint Dominique Morgan as the Interim National Director of Black & Pink, effective immediately. In this position, he will assume responsibilities of day-to-day operations and mission promotion for Black & Pink.
Former National Director Tray Johns’s employment with Black & Pink has concluded, and we wish her well in her next endeavors.

Dominique Morgan has been working in spaces of advocacy and support for nearly 10 years, beginning with volunteer work that quickly evolved to organizational leadership. As a queer, formerly incarcerated individual, he brings the intersectionalities and lived experiences he represents to his work. We’re dazzled by all that he does!

Dominique has smart and exciting ideas for both internal capacity-building and external outreach for Black & Pink that he’ll begin to implement in collaboration and collective decision with the Board. He’ll continue to serve in his role as Board President for actions and decisions that would not constitute a conflict of interest. He is traveling to Boston during the week of the 18th.

Dominique secured a bachelor’s degree in Public Health from Southern New Hampshire University in 2016. Soon after, Dominique began his current position at Charles Drew Health Center, Inc. in Omaha, Nebraska as an Adolescent Health Educator. He also founded the organization Queer People of Color Nebraska, is spearheading the development of an LGBQIA Youth Safe Space in Omaha, serves as the Justice Chair for NAACP’s Omaha charter, works as a facilitator for the Minnesota Humanities Project program Increasing Student Engagement Through Absent Narratives, and is a team member on the Juvenile Justice Project with Terra Luna Collaborative.
In addition, Dominique sits on the LGBTQ/HIV Federal Criminal Justice Policy Working Group as well as the City of Omaha’s LGBT Task Force. He has received numerous awards and recognition for his community work to empower LGBTQIA youth and to create opportunities for re-entry success.

Please join us in giving Dominique a warm welcome to his new role!

    Hey Dominique, Roger Garcia. We crossed paths at the YP Summit earlier this year. I wanted to make sure you got an invite to apply for the Nonprofit Executive Institute, especially in your new role as national ED for Black and PInk. The NEI focuses on best practices for running nonprofits and is a great networking/relationship building opportunity to work with other Omaha area nonprofit executives and funders as well. The application can be found here:

    Let me know if you have any questions and thanks!
