United Black Ellument’s 5th Anniversary

Anniversary weekend

Did you know that U-BE is five years old!?!

In June of 2009, the doors at 3116 Commerce St, Suite C, opened to begin mobilizing Dallas’ young black same-gender-loving men to change for a better tomorrow and raise awareness about HIV/AIDS. As a program of Resource Center, United Black Ellument (U-BE) has reached over 13,000 people as it marks it’s 5th year anniversary with a renewed mission to empower young same-gender-loving men to constantly strive for greater while continuing to raise awareness around sexual health.

We would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the success of the program and advancement of the community. We invite you to help us reflect on and celebrate our journey, July 18-20.
