Co-director Jonathan Alingu featured in the Nonprofit Quarterly

Wed, 02/03/2021 - 08:25

Co-director of CFJWJ Jonathan Alingu was featured in an interview in the Nonprofit Quarterly titled Defanging Disinformation: 6 Action Steps Nonprofits Can Take. Working together with partners at ReFrame, the article talks about the disinformation that was spread during the 2020 General Election and ways groups can address this in the moment and long term.

Here is how Alingu is thinking about future integration with nonprofits in Florida:

We need to incorporate disinformation research into opposition planning and support members in critical thinking. We also need to look at information voids and make sure we’re communicating with people to fill those voids, because otherwise what fills those voids is disinformation.

CF-JwJ’s 2021 Labor Of Love Awards Show!

Fri, 01/22/2021 - 12:25

As a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic and wanting to keep our social justice family safe, we were unable to host our annual CFJWJ Art Show and Awards Celebration in 2020. This fall, however, our CFJWJ Executive Board decided that we still needed a space to honor workers, and this year in particular, essential frontline workers that had to persevere throughout the trials of the 2020 international pandemic. These workers are the foundation of our communities and respectfully deserve acknowledgment.


We will be honoring the many organizations and people in Central Florida that demonstrated the deep levels of solidarity needed in an unprecedented year.

We will also be hosting a very special art and experience auction featuring local movement artists as well as artists from across the country. All proceeds from the event go to Central Florida Jobs With Justice to support our organization and let us continue building worker power beyond 2021.

So tune in on Saturday, February 13th at 6:00 PM via Facebook Live for our Labor of Love Awards show!

Hurricane Preparedness Week (July 27 – July 31)

Wed, 07/22/2020 - 09:58


The Central Florida community is bracing for a potentially active hurricane season than normal. In an area still dealing with the effects of Hurricane Irma and also Hurricane Maria as many residents from Puerto Rico relocated to Orange and Osceola counties, Covid-19 has added a new twist into how our communities prepare for a Hurricane. With local and state officials struggling to provide sufficient resources around unemployment insurance, housing, and healthcare during the pandemic, a storm could create a very dangerous public health crisis for Floridians, and particularly those in neighborhoods that are directly impacted economically by natural disasters. It is more important, now than ever, to ensure our communities are prepared and resilient.

Alongside Organize Florida, next week we will be co-hosting the Central Florida Disaster Resilience Initiative’s Hurricane Preparedness Week. The week will consist of several virtual events that will support residents in Orange, Osceola, and Seminole county create and build a plan for the hurricane season. Events range from educational conversations on the science behind hurricanes, food security, how do we prepare for a hurricane during the Covid-19 pandemic, and knowing your rights during the storm and during recovery. We will be hosting a discussion on Tuesday, July 28th with the Emergency Managers of each county to understand the plan our local officials have for Hurricane preparation.

Give to the All Black Lives Fund

Fri, 06/12/2020 - 02:00

Pulse Nightclub was a refuge for LGBTQ+ folks in Orlando to live and exist in shared experience. That experience, though, did not just exist exclusively in areas of gender expression, identity, and orientation. The realities of poverty, housing and food insecurities, lack of affordable health insurance, the threat of deportation, violence, and many other hardships that impact LGBTQ+ people of color the most was also a common bond for many regular Pulse club goers, and it served as space where folks could share joy and a reprieve from systems of oppression for a brief, yet necessary moment. A moment that was tragically taken away on June 12, 2016.

Black LGBTQ+ people in Orlando, despite the commitment from elected leaders to being united, continue to suffer the brunt of police brutality, discrimination in the workplace, economic insecurity, and displacement in the same painful ways.

In response to this moment, with a pandemic causing tremendous hardships, and the uprisings that followed the death of black people at the hands of the police, the Contigo Fund has launched the All Black Lives Fund.

The All Black Lives Fund was launched by the Contigo Fund to resource frontline LGBTQ+ organizing groups and efforts that are Black LGBTQ+ led in Central Florida to build on the movement for Black lives — particularly those led by and for Black Transgender, Gender Nonconforming, and Gender Nonbinary communities and Sex Workers. The Fund will support grassroots organizing to build visibility and power, promote safety, and amplify demands of those most impacted by both anti-Black racism and gender discrimination.

Organizing for All Black Lives Fund will build on the movement inspired by and in solidarity with #JusticeforGeorgeFloyd.  The Fund is motivated by the numerous and often invisibilized cases of violence and murders against our Black Transgender family at the hands of police brutality, white supremacy, and transphobia, including Iyanna Dior, Nina Pop, Tony McDade, Deresha Armstrong, and others recently taken from us.  Calling on all of us to #SayTheirNames, we offer support and solidarity to all Black lives in Central Florida and across the nation.

Your donation, will be matched three times, tripling your impact on Central Florida black LGBTQ+ groups.

Let’s truly honor the 49 that were lost at Pulse on June 12, 2016, by investing in the black LGBTQ+ community.
