The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Action Fund builds the grassroots political power of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. Donating to the Action Fund helps build the grassroots political power of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, and it comes at a critical point in our movement's history. We did make a lot of progress all over the country last year, including finally achieving marriage equality in New York, having Proposition 8 ruled unconstitutional in California, and getting nondiscrimination legislation passed in states from Maryland to New Hampshire.
But we still have a long way to go. It's still legal to fire and discriminate against LGB employees in 29 states, and transgender people lack employment protections in 35 states. Even though we've made huge strides with marriage equality, 41 states still prohibit recognition of same-sex marriage — and the Defense of Marriage Act prevents same-sex couples from being equal in the eyes of the federal government, no matter what state you live in.
There's still a lot of work to be done and battles to fight. Your support makes that fight possible. We have power to build, actions to take, and change to create; please give now.
