Review for NATIONAL CENTER FOR LESBIAN RIGHTS, San Francisco, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

NCLR is a fantastic, results-oriented nonprofit that works for change at the institutional level, winning landmark court cases on behalf of LGBT people.

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

the victories and sense that it's a matter of when, not if, the LGBT community gains truly equal civil rights.

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

smart, passionate, and articulate.

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

take on additional discrimination cases.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2008

Role:  Donor & attended events.

Review for SILICON VALLEY BICYCLE COALITION, Cupertino, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

SVBC is a really effective advocate for those of us using bicycles for transportation. I appreciate their multilevel approach - from teaching safety classes in schools to advocating with transportation agencies for greater accommodation of cyclists to organizing Santa Clara County's Bike to Work Day activities. They have a great website - dedicated volunteers provide updates on construction projects and policy developments in cities in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties. Volunteering is fun; there's a strong esprit de corps.

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

the way staff and volunteers stay connected to the joy of riding.

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

dedicated, passionate, articulate, and fun.
