Good News! The NEW RashawnBrazell.com is here!

Good News! The NEW RashawnBrazell.com is here!

On behalf of the Rashawn Brazell Memorial Fund, we are proud to announce the re-launch of our website, RashawnBrazell.com. While nearly a year ago we gathered on the corner of Nostrand Ave. & Fulton St. to mourn Rashawn's passing, today we celebrate a notable landmark in the life of the fund that we've created to provide a sustainable tribute to his memory.

The newly designed RashawnBrazell.com features:

Application materials for the Memorial Scholarship and Mentoring Program
An outline of our exciting new initiatives
Colorful photo galleries
A welcome from the founders
A fully searchable news blog with dates for upcoming events
A user-friendly "donate now" option
An extended biography of Rashawn with photos from the Brazell family archives
And much more!

The urgency of the RBC yahoogroup's call for change challenged us to provide the community with avenues for significant grassroots action. To this end, we invite you to check out what we have in store for 2006. If you share our commitment to combating the racism and homophobia encountered by gay men of African descent, we'd love to have you on board for what promises to be an exciting year. As always, we invite you to email us directly with your feedback and questions.

In solidarity,

Larry D. Lyons II and Mervyn Marcano
Founders, Rashawn Brazell Memorial Fund
