The National Association of Black and White Men Together (NABWMT) will hold its 40th Convention in New Orleans from July 21 to July 24.
Scott Duty, Co-Chair of the convention, said, “NABWMT has been at the forefront of anti-racism initiatives, equality for all, and creating supportive environments for those interested in interracial relationships for over 40 years.”
“The National Association of Black and White Men Together is a gay, multiracial, multicultural organization committed to fostering supportive environments wherein racial and cultural barriers can be overcome and the goal of human equality realized,” Duty added. “To these ends, we engage in educational, political, cultural, and social activities as a means of dealing with the racism, sexism, homophobia, HIV/AIDS discrimination, and other inequities in our communities and in our lives.”
“A highlight of our annual calendar is a convention bringing together our members and supporters, including a few from other countries, for our ‘family reunion.’ We will be having workshops, speakers, and activities designed to inspire and educate our attendees. Around 125 people are expected to join us at The DoubleTree Canal Street for this momentous occasion.”
