BUILD (Brothers United in Leadership Development) is a partnership between Diverse & Resilient and gay and bisexual African American male leaders in Milwaukee. BUILD allows community leaders to take a more prominent role in their own development as leaders in Milwaukee’s LGBT community and the greater African American community. The members of BUILD have taken action by joining the boards of prominent community organizations, building visibility for gay and bisexual men in the African American community, and spreading messages on safer sex and HIV prevention.
BUILD meets once a month at Diverse & Resilient to discuss current topics affecting African American gay and bisexual men and to create strategies to address issues in the community. The members of BUILD also organize a biannual leadership retreat.
