CROWN HEIGHTS: Saturday, August 27, 2:00 – 4:00pm
Caribbean Equality Project (CEP) is hosting a community brunch to celebrate the 7th Anniversary of Unchained, the organization’s inaugural support group. The event will introduce and launch the in-person Brooklyn iteration of the program in partnership with the Brooklyn Community Pride Center with a location in Little Caribbean, Brooklyn.
Unchained, the first of its kind in New York City, is the Caribbean Equality Project’s peer-to-peer immigrant support group that anchors the organization’s Healing Justice work. The historic program creates an empowering space to affirm the unique cultural experiences and identities of Caribbean LGBTQ+ immigrants, those who are HIV-impacted, and survivors of family rejection, discrimination, intimate partner violence, and sexual assault to heal and build community in New York City.
The brunch-style community event will feature inspirational testimonials from Unchained members, cultural performances, and delicious Caribbean-inspired food and will be hosted by the group facilitators Sai Ali and Diahann B. Browne, MSW.
Join us to celebrate 7-years of healing, community building, and empowerment as we expand our Unchained program to continue serving and advocating for Caribbean LGBTQ+ voices in NYC!
