The Gathering is an environment that encourages fun and discussions that engages and empowers black young people to be part of a solution-driven process addressing societal issues that impact them and their peers. Additionally, incorporating 2SLGBTQ+ education to combat the stigma the black 2SLGBTQ+ community faces.
