Young Black Gay Men’s Leadership Initiative releases a tool to help young people understand the Affordable Care Act.

From National Black Gay Men’s Advocacy Coalition (NBGMAC)

With the coming of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the nation must prepare for a turning point in health care for US citizens. However, despite the possibilities and promises of the ACA, the law still hinges on our collective ability to inform and get those most vulnerable enrolled. By utilizing new and popular media that moves people into a conversation about health, we are able to successfully reach individuals in a way that goes beyond the technical jargon often heard when discussing healthcare reform. In an effort to reach Black MSM regarding open enrollment in the Health Exchange Marketplace, the Young Black Gay Men’s Leadership Initiative (YBGLI) has launched “How to Make the ACA T’Werk for You.” With the inclusion of animated gifs and vital health reform information, YBGLI answers the question of what is healthcare reform and you should care. It is a tool intended to speak to a new generation of health care consumers on the benefits and importance of ACA.

The Young Black Gay Men’s Leadership Initiative is an initiative of the National Black Gay Men’s Advocacy Coalition. It is a collaborative collection of committed young black gay, bi, SGL and other men who have sex with men (MSM) from around the country that work towards addressing the HIV epidemic in their country. These individuals represent a wide cross section of people engaging with young black gay, bi, SGL and MSM at the local, regional and national level. With an expertise in a number of areas the organizing committee hopes to help bring the abilities and talents of young black gay, bi, SGL and MSM to bear against the face of the epidemic.
