The Task Force completley transformed my ideas of activism and gave me the best opportunity I've had so far to truly create change in my community. I wouldn't trade my experience with Task Force folks for the world. I learned so much!!

Never have I seen so many extraordinarily competent, hard-working, motivated, and effective people come out of an activist organization. Thank you for all of the hard work you do to bring equality for the LGBT community. I worked with Trystan Reese in California for the No on Prop 8 campaign. I never fashioned myself as an activist, but he made me feel so at home right from the start. He knew how to motivate and train grassroots leaders, giving us the tools we needed to really make a difference. Truly a phenomenal experience to work with him and his staff.

The Great!

My experience with The Task Force has been nothing short of amazing. Very obviously, everyone I met from The Task Force is amazingly dedicated, talented, and hard-working. They know how to support groups and individuals, to help plant the seeds of grass-roots organizing that not only gets volunteers involved, but brings them to the forefront of the movement itself. Through working with The Task Force, I have not simply spent time working for something I support, but learned how to effectively focus my energy and passion to creating change. Rather than simply joining a movement, The Task Force has empowered me to help lead it. Because of this, I have become a better leader, a more focused worker, and gained confidence in all areas of my life, not just while working for marriage equality.

The Great!

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

Community results, I've seen throughout the GLBTQ community in Los Angeles. Individual results, I've seen in my work, both within and outside of my volunteer work with them; in my leadership abilities; and in my confidence.

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

I learned how to take ownership of my involvement within the gay rights movement, and of the movement itself. They empower volunteers to not just participate, but to grow and lead.

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

Field organizers, and other volunteers similar to myself. Dedicated, energetic, tireless, compassionate, friendly, talented, beautiful, amazing.

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

Support community-based GLBTQ groups around the world, empowering people everywhere.

Volunteering for the Decline to Sign campaign and then being a super volunteer for the No on 8 campaign was very eye-opening to me. It helped me better understand the community I live in and the dynamics of running a local vote drive.

The Great!

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

awareness and motivation in other GLBT people.

Ways to make it better...

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

figure out a way to get more GLBT involved. Make it a right of passage -- if you're GLBT or an ally, give 3 hours a week. You owe it to yourself.

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

thier CAN DO attitude.

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

amazing and really helped others get involved and get motivated

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

pass equality bills (marriage, employment, etc.) in half of the states.

Ways to make it better...

we would have done more door to door canvassing.

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

Lack of volunteers and funding.

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

Trystan Reese is one of the most caring and helpful organizers ever! And Rae is doing a wonderful job. They help me keep reaching when I am tired and downtrodden and to throw up my hands and quit.

I have volunteered for the Task Force in a variety of different ways for over three years. As a concerned individual who likes to use their time wisely, selecting which organization to volunteer for has always been an issue for me, primarily because the goals and focus of the organization must correlate with my own. What I find highly valuable about The Task Force is that it is one of the only national LGBT organizations with a full view of the issues at hand-- it has folks working on everything from transgender specific concerns to hate crimes legislation to, of course, the battle for marriage equality and beyond. When I volunteer with The Task Force I feel like my time is also being held into consideration by great people doing absolutely crucial work. The work I have done specifically is volunteering at phone banks. I work a hectic schedule and phone banks are usually held at night around 6p. It gives me time to get off work and to an office. Not only are we supplied with dinner, but Task Force staff train everyone every time on how to phone bank. Definitely makes me feel very comfortable. Even when the phone conversations are awkward--calling voters in specific areas that are not so LGBT friendly, for example--Task Force staff coach you and make you feel confident to actually have a constructive conversation. Keeps me coming back every time! All in all, the organization is a perfect fit for an individual looking to be involved in all of the issues in a time useful manner. I would definitely recommend getting involved with NGLTF to anyone!

The Great!

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

the battle for marriage equality, on state and federal levels with different acts of legislation, and by integrating ALL aspects of the hugely diverse LGBT community.

Keep it going the way it is!

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

Working with the Task Force is so enjoyable because I feel like I am contributing to the greater good in a totally comfortable environment. The staff treat everyone like family!

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

Friendly, welcoming, very warm! You get to know everyone and become a regular around the office.

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

Be even more beneficial than it already is!

Ways to make it better...

Like I said, the only awkward experiences I've had are phone banking conversations with voters who are not LGBT-friendly. But Task Force staff always coach me how to handle it-- so it becomes an educational experience each time.

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

The non-LGBT friendly world. But The Task Force has been around for decades-- it will continue to prosper.

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

I really enjoy the time I spend here. For someone without a lot of time that is huge.
