- presents Social Justice & Black Lives Matter: A Path Forward
The one-hour event will be moderated by the talented and energetic Bryan Gallo, Host of “Desert Living” on NBC Palm Springs and host of the podcast “Do Your Part,” where he discusses racism, homophobia and a wide range of current topics.
Our first of two panelists is Tim Vincent, Co-founder and first board president of Brothers of the Desert. Its mission is to empower black gay men and their allies through education, socialization, advocacy, volunteerism and mentorship. Brothers of the Desert was formed in 2018 with a purpose of reducing isolation and disconnection that many Black gay men experience in the Coachella Valley.
Our second expert panelist is Dr. Keyphan Sheppard, a native to Palm Springs and is the Pastor at Word of Life Fellowship Center in Desert Hot Springs, California. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies, a Master’s degree in Divinity, and a Doctorate in Ministry.
In his capacity with Word of Life Fellowship Center, he has organized thousands of meals for the homeless, acted as an on-call chaplain to the DHS Police Department and is an advisor to the Desert Hot Springs High School’s Black Student Union.
Join like-minded leaders for an honest conversation with Tim Vincent and Dr. Sheppard moderated by Bryan Gallo about race, equality and social justice here in the Coachella Valley.
Following our panelist presentations, stay tuned in for a 30-minute Q&A session.
