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.

In the weeks since the shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, this nation and, specifically, the LGBT community, have been coming to terms with what this horrendous act of violence and hatred means for our community and movement. In the face of such unbrindled violence, NGLCC has been incredibly moved by the support and solidarity with the LGBT community expressed by our affiliate chambers and corporate partners. Below is a snapshot of just some of the tributes to those lost or injured in Orlando.

We appreciate the outpouring of support from allied organizations and corporate partners. We will keep them informed of any call to action to aid those affected in Orlando.
