"We have a disproportionate number of Black LGBT people who are suffering from hate crimes and we need you to speak about it and advocate for them. It is our Black brothers and sisters who are transgender people, or who are gay and lesbian that need you; they need you to not let them be oppressed at their place of work."

--National Black Justice Coalition Deputy Director Jason W. Bartlett, addressing the NAACP Board of Governors Wednesday
