What do POC Advocates do?
POC (People of Color) Advocates work within various sectors of PRISM to ensure that the services and community that we create are meant for everyone, regardless of race, ethnicity, or nationality. Whether that be within our SMDCT creating QPOC products to raise money for black-led initiatives or within our Research Team educating people about issues surrounding systemic racism and black history, POC Advocates work towards a more inclusive, accurate depiction of the LGBT community.
