Caribbean Equality Project (CEP) is a Queens, New York-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization that empowers, strengthens, and represents the marginalized voices of black and brown, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, gender non-conforming, and queer+ people of Caribbean origin and descent in the greater New York City area. The Caribbean Equality Project’s mission is to serve the local LGBTQ+ Caribbean population through advocacy, community organizing, education, cultural, and social programming. Since being founded in 2015, by Mohamed Q. Amin in response to anti-LGBTQ+ hate violence in Richmond Hill, CEP has been the only education-based agency serving the Caribbean-American LGBTQ+ immigrant community in the greater New York City area and acts as a liaison between our most vulnerable community members and government agencies and elected officials.
