About the Task Force

The mission of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force is to build the grassroots power of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. We do this by training activists, equipping state and local organizations with the skills needed to organize broad-based campaigns to defeat anti-LGBT referenda and advance pro-LGBT legislation, and building the organizational capacity of our movement. Our Policy Institute, the movement’s premier think tank, provides research and policy analysis to support the struggle for complete equality and to counter right-wing lies. As part of a broader social justice movement, we work to create a nation that respects the diversity of human expression and identity and creates opportunity for all.

    I appreciate the work of the task force and have always been an activist one on one for equal rights. I would like to partner with any LGBT group and start a grassrrots movement of LGBTV’s-Veterans. A tour-de-force show of patriotism, honor, duty and freedom, We(LGBT) have been in the military since this country had a military, am I in danger of losing benefits now that I’m OUT? Does being different detract from the oath to defend the Constitution? Hpw long will our rights, lives and funerals be allowed to be disrupted by those who are unable/unwilling to evolve? A37 year Veteran and Congressional Medal of Honor winner that’s transgendering, can-not shop on base, because her face no longer matches her I.D Will she be denied a new one once her process is complete?.

    Hi there,

    I just read an article on discrimination that you posted a while back on your blog: http://thetaskforceblog.org/2012/09/19/the-47-percent-is-really-about-employment-discrimination/

    I thought you might be interested in a workplace infographic we just published, it’s titled ‘Discrimination and

    Dollars’, check it out: http://complianceandsafety.com/blog/workplace-infographic-discrimination-and-dollars/

    If you like it, feel free to publish it on your site.

    Thanks a lot,

    Hi,

    My name is Aldo Baker and I wanted to share a new infographic, and thought this might interest your readers as it provides a visual way to understand “Could You Live on Social Security?”
    You can review the graphic at – http://www.globelifeinsurance.com/article/Could-You-Live-On-Social-Security
    If you like the graphic, you can add it to your blog or share it through your social media accounts. If you would like to display the graphic on your blog or website you can easily copy and paste the code directly from the webpage. I have also included a link to the text based fact sheet to save you the trouble of retyping them – http://db.tt/E8tM8Oop

    Thanks,
    Aldo Baker

    i wrote a song for my niece and her fiancee and it has 33,000+ views on youtube, as well as positive comments from more than 100 countries. i respectfully request that you consider posting the song on your blog site, as it deals with marriage equality and resonates not only with LGBTs but also with those of us who love them. here’s the URL:

    thank you for your time, and i will hope to hear from you.

    Sincerely,

    Bye Bye to TheTaskForce after the critical op-ed from the Leadership Programs Director on saying Bye Bye to Bisexuality.

    You should be absolutely ashamed of yourselves.
