Nolizwe Nondabula (they/them) is a queer Bay Area born, Johannesburg raised, Xhosa spirit. As a child of Black South African immigrants and keeper of horrible puns, Nolizwe brings over a decade of experience interconnecting financial curiosity, community engagement and racial justice to achieve greater impact. They currently serve as the Co-Director of the Black LGBTQIA+ Migrant Project (BLMP). BLMP uses leadership development, capacity building, and organizing to address the ways in which Black LGBTQ+ migrants are criminalized by the legal and immigration systems, and marginalized in the broader migrant community as well as racial and economic justice movements.
Nolizwe has a deep commitment to building critical connections and leveraging resources. They are passionate about transformative movement building practices that are rooted in reclaiming their connection to land, guided by movement at the speed of trust and centered in resilient community-based solutions. When they’re not basking in QTBIPOC joy, you can find Nolizwe recharging with the power rangers and/or turning inward to rest.
