Hey, guys! We are pleased to announce that we raised a bit under $5,000 for our Black Lives Matter fundraising campaign yesterday and Adam4Adam is proud to round it up to $5,000 and then top it with an additional $5,000 as promised. So today, we will be sending a total of $10,000 to the National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC) an organization dedicated to the empowerment of Black lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and same gender loving (LGBTQ/SGL) people, including people living with HIV/AIDS.
We are not surprised by your generosity as A4A has always been a very open and very loving community since 2003. We knew you would “deliver.”
But why NBJC, you ask? Adam4Adam chose this organization because it offers help to the Black LGBTQ community. They have been around since 2003 “Building Stronger Black Families.” NBJC: 1) focuses on the African American family, 2) put a face on the Black LGBTQ/SGL community, and 3) foster a collective effort to accord dignity and respect to all African American families as an important step in individual and community empowerment.

Of course our fight for equality—whether for gender or race—isn’t limited to one day per year, which is why here on Adam4Adam we start by doing what we can with what we have. We inform our A4A blog readers with the latest news on diversity and equality issues. We raise funds for the community annually and as a company, A4A observes equal opportunity in the workplace, meaning we employ people regardless of their sexuality, race, and gender.
Lastly, on our app and website, Adam4Adam observes a zero tolerance policy on racism and biphobic, transphobic, and homophobic bullying. This means that racist users, as well as those who bully others on the A4A app, will be instantly banned on our platform.
Before we leave you, A4A members who wish to do more and support the Black Lives Matter movement may check here for ways to help the cause.
Again, thank you for your continued support, guys, this campaign would not have been made possible without your generosity. See you again next time!
