Legal & Political Information

Task Force

The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, Inc. (NGLTF, Inc.), founded in 1973 and incorporated in 1974, works to build the grassroots political power of the LGBT community to win complete equality. We do this through direct and grassroots lobbying to defeat anti-LGBT ballot initiatives and legislation and pass pro-LGBT legislation and other measures. We also analyze and report on the positions of candidates for public office on issues of importance to the LGBT community. NGLTF, Inc., is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit corporation incorporated in New York. Contributions to NGLTF, Inc., are not tax-deductible.

ACLU


American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU):  America's foremost advocate of individual rights, the American Civil Liberties Union is a nonpartisan organization founded in 1920. With national headquarters in New York and Washington and 52 affiliates throughout the country, the ACLU is widely regarded as the nation's premier public interest law firm. The ACLU believes the only way to protect the freedoms outlined in the Bill of Rights is to guarantee that everyone, no matter how unpopular, has the same rights.  The LGBT Project fights discrimination and moves public opinion on LGBT rights through the courts, legislatures and public education

Victory


The Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund works to elect LGBT leaders to public office for one simple reason. They change America's politics.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender office holders are our clearest and most convincing champions for true equality. As leaders in government, they become the face and voice of a community. They challenge the lies of extremists and speak authentically about themselves, their families and their community.

Since 1991, the Victory Fund has helped thousands of openly LGBT candidates win election to local, state and federal offices.

Equality Florida

Equality Florida is the largest civil rights organization dedicated to securing full equality for Florida’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community. Through lobbying, grassroots organizing, education, and coalition building, we are changing Florida so that no one suffers harassment or discrimination on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
