By Yolande Kwinana In celebration of the Nelson Mandela International Day for Freedom, Justice, and Democracy on Monday, July 18, we honor the sacrifices the Nelson Mandela made for the sake of ensuring every person has their basic human rights. We are grateful for his leadership as a South African and as a world leader; the work that he did has provided organizations like NGLCC with a platform for its LGBT economic advocacy and supplier diversity initiatives in South Africa.

Displayed amongst various certificates and family photographs in my office, I have a yellow map of the United States pinned on my wall. As the Director of Affiliate Relations and External Affairs of NGLCC, I know this map is a constant reminder that everything--the entire strength of the movement--is out there. The work of each affiliate chamber in every city around the country contributes to the endeavor for LGBT economic equality, and the NGLCC works to bring all those people, from all those places, together.
