2015 Legislative and Policy Guide
The National LGBTQ Task Force Action Fund is mobilizing, training, and partnering with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer advocates across the nation to secure full freedom, justice, and equality for all. We’re working to create a future free from violence, discrimination, racism, poverty and injustice. On the the local level, we’re fighting back against the opposition’s attack on the recent advances to equality.
At the federal level, we’re working with the Administration to include LGBTQ people in existing federal policies. We’re also pushing members of Congress to pass legislation that would ensure basic freedoms and critical protections for LGBTQ people.
This includes delivering equal access to good paying jobs, securing strong workplace nondiscrimination protections, ensuring access to quality healthcare, ending violence and all forms of discrimination, reforming our criminal justice system, passing fair and comprehensive immigration reform, and making sure our voices are counted and heard. Our advocacy campaigns seek to deliver a world where LGBTQ people can be their whole and genuine selves.
