—— More About Mandy Carter ——–

Mandy Carter is a southern African-American lesbian social justice activist with a 47-year movement history of social, racial and LGBT justice organizing since 1968. Raised in two orphanages and a foster home for her first 18 years as a ward of the state of New York, Ms. Carter attributes the influences of the Quaker-based American Friends Service Committee, the former Institute for the Study of Nonviolence, and the pacifist-based War Resisters League for her sustained multi-racial and multi-issue organizing.

Ms. Carter helped co-found two ground breaking organizations. Southerners On New Ground (SONG) and the National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC). SONG, founded in 1993, is about building progressive movement across the South by creating transformative models of organizing that connects race, class, culture, gender, sexual orientation and gender identity. Specifically, SONG integrates work against homophobia into freedom struggles in the South. She served as its Executive Director from 2003-2005.

NBJC, founded in 2003, is a national civil rights organization dedicated to empowering Black lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. NBJC’s mission is to end racism and homophobia. NBJC provides leadership at the intersection of national civil rights organizations and LGBT organizations. Advocating for the unique challenges and needs of the African-American LGBT community that are often relegated to the sidelines.

Ms. Carter is the national coordinator of the Bayard Rustin Commemoration Project (BRCP) of the National Black Justice Coalition. A national organizing effort to acknowledge, honor, and celebrate black gay civil rights activist Bayard Rustin.

Currently, Ms. Carter is helping to organize diverse broad-based participation in this year’s 50th Anniversary Selma-To-Montgomery Voting Rights March that moved Congress to pass the 1965 Voting Rights Act that enfranchised hundreds of thousands of blacks across the South. Numerous events are planned in this region that includes the participation by many of those on the 1965 March. Participation by President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama is expected. www.dreammarcheson.com
