The Black LGBTQ+ Community and allies came together to initiate a call to action. Through a powerful flow of healing music, prayer, and potent speeches, community leaders challenged us all to take a stand to urge our current administration to ramp up their efforts to secure the safe release of Brittney Griner. A list of contact information for elected officials was distributed with an urging to make phone calls, send emails, write letters, and activate our social media followings to do the same.
