OMAHA, Neb. — Black & Pink celebrates the launch of Black and Pink Massachusetts, formerly “Black & Pink Boston” and a member of Black & Pink’s nationwide Chapter network. Black and Pink Massachusetts’ decision to become an independent entity from the National organization is supported by Black & Pink, and the National organization looks forward to the successes Black and Pink Massachusetts will have at the local level.
“Building transformative systems takes dedication and time,” says David Booth, Black & Pink National Deputy Director. “It’s a monumental testament to the transformative community work at Black & Pink to have the privilege of our founding Chapter define liberation for themselves. I am confident in their continued success and excited to watch as Black and Pink Massachusetts builds their legacy of collective liberation.”
Black and Pink Massachusetts will continue to support incarcerated LGBTQI people and incarcerated people living with HIV in Massachusetts. Michael Cox will serve as Black and Pink Massachusetts’ Executive Director.
“The goal is to live in a world where everyone, regardless of the identities they carry, will have access to their liberation dream,” says Dominique Morgan, Black & Pink National Executive Director. “We are excited to see the work Black and Pink Massachusetts will bring to fruition that carries us closer to that goal. They are in extremely capable hands with Michael Cox as Executive Director.”
