The National LGBTQ Task Force is fighting for full freedom, justice and equality for LGBTQ people

Note from the CREDO team: This May, the National LGBTQ Task Force is among three amazing groups that will receive a share of our monthly grant. As they approach a historic 50th anniversary in 2023, we hope they can count on your vote of support, especially at this time when the LGBTQ community, trans youth, freedom of speech, sexual freedom, bodily autonomy, communities of color and our very democracy is under relentless attack at both the state and national levels.

The National LGBTQ Task Force lives its values every day – fighting for a just and compassionate world for ALL. We understand that we have multiple, complex identities and full liberation for one means equality for all. Our organization continues to lead the work in Queering Democracy, Equity and Faith advocacy, which is carried out in close partnership LGBTQ and cross-movement partners. We do so by working hard to get out the vote for local and state elections, amplify the voices of our communities – your voices – and make sure to highlight what those with multiple marginalized identities need so that we have full nondiscrimination protections. We’re making sure that we see full representation of our communities across the country through participation in the Census and access to affirming care for our communities, our families and our loved ones. We all deserve to live full lives, have access to employment, and fully participate in our communities, knowing we have protection from discrimination. 

The last 2+ years have been challenging, yet the National LGBTQ Task Force has kept fighting for all of us. We’ve helped to support efforts such as the Equal Pay Queering Equity Win earlier this year, where the world learned that the four-time World Cup champions of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team won a $24 million equal pay and sex discrimination class action settlement and U.S. Soccer publicly promised to equalize pay and working conditions. 

We continue to Queer Faith Communities through our Cross-Movement Leadership to create new messaging framework on non-discrimination in health care to shift the narrative towards bodily autonomy in health care, countering political extremists’ anti-woman, anti-trans and anti-queer tactics. 

The National LGBTQ Task has also had a hand in registering thousands of new voters, and through our work in Queer the Census, we continue to partner with the Census Bureau to bring more focus to LGBTQ people, those people experiencing homelessness, and in reframing how it will communicate citizenship, race and ethnicity on survey questions. And we have been a key organization fighting for passage of the Equality Act, so there will finally be federal-level protections for LGBTQ people and people of color in employment, accommodations and many other areas. 

Change is possible! Access to democracy, for everyone, depends on full representation in all our communities and census data, and the enforcement of LGBTQ civil rights depends on nondiscrimination protections. Today and always, we fight to better the lives of LGBTQ+ people, especially those most vulnerable in our community, Black and Brown people, transgender and non-binary folx, people with disabilities, and people living in poverty.
