I have had experience with NCLR in multiple ways: 1) They successfully connected me with a Lesbian Attorney when I needed one in my area. 2) They were a sponsor for the QueerFamilies=HealthyFamilies Conference where I served on the steering committee and was a presenter. 3) I am currently working with them to address the anti-gay articles published by CAMFT in getting CAMFT, to apologize, make ammends, change their internal structure to better serve the needs of LGBT people. At all times they are professional and committed to serving the LGBT community and in their fight for our equal rights!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

In helping to put on the 1st Conference for professionals dedicated to educating mental health professionals about LGBT Parenting.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Want to tell everyone about us and what we do.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

With NCLR's efforts and those of other organizations we will see LGBT gain full equality. I feel that energy when I am involved with their activities and functions.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Helpful, polite, professional, passionate and dedicated

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Change the world for LGBT people everywhere!

Ways to make it better...

They were great.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Obtaining enough funding to serve all the individuals that need assistance and to fund the campaign for Equal Rights for all LGBT people.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I am grateful that NCLR exists. It makes me feel safer in a society where I face prejudice and discrimination.

NCLR is, simply put, an amazing organization. They were founded more than 30 years ago, during a turbulent time in American and LGBT history, as well as somewhat of a vague time for lesbians in particular (most early cases had to do with adoption and general family law). Since then, they have grown into a prominent, national LGBT-wide legal organization, working on behalf of the entire queer community and its families for one simple thing: Equality. Whether it's in sports, work, the hospital or simply one's own family life, equality is the end goal and they really will be here until this is achieved. I'm very thankful for the work they have done and continue to do (if you want a Grisham-like set of legal stories, just head to their Web site!), and honestly we wouldn't be where we are now without NCLR. Whether they win Pride Choice or not, hopefully their hard work is duly noted.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

national media, courtrooms small and large, my daily life and the life of the community.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

work on also being part of higher-level 'cause' conversations and mindful not to risk pigeon-holing the organization into that of a "wacky San Francisco" type. The work is so tremendous and powerful, I'd hate to see it marginalized by greater America.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their audacity to fight for justice and their perseverance to win :)

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

enthusiastic and dedicated to their work, able to keep the goal in mind even during tough times.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

establish more offices/outposts for even more casework; attend more events and hold more gatherings across the country; research/litigate more cases (small and large) that impact the various and nuanced aspects of achieving equality under the law.

Ways to make it better...

there was a little less emphasis on getting all of the demographics right; not getting bogged down in too much "PC" culture that could end up alienating less all-out-liberal members of the LGBT community (not every American has a "Bay Area" perspective).

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

reaching out to the greater American LGBT community, especially Heartland/rural; finding a place to hold the growing number of anniversary celebration attendees :) One challenge NCLR DOESN'T face? Staying positive that one day full equality will be seen!

One thing I'd also say is that...

I'm very grateful for NCLR. I don't always agree with its methods, but their work is powerful and important stuff.

I live in Minnesota--far from the sweet air of equality blowing across California these days. Although based in San Francisco, NCLR regularly helps our state's leading GLBT organization (OutFront MN)with legal issues we encounter. They are always there for us. It is like being backed by up by the strongest, most powerful big sister you could imagine.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Making meaningful change for ordinary people.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make sure people do know all the wonderful work NCLR does.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The lack of ego and need to hog all the credit for the work they do.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Fun, smart, dedicated, powerful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Fund more internships for undergraduates and law students to instill public service values in them.

Ways to make it better...

I could see the NCLR folks in person more often.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Backlash, funding, funding, funding.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I'm so proud of NCLR.
