National Gay and Lesbian Task Force
June 11, 2009
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.
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.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Volunteer & Phone banking, volunteer recruitment, election day informational campaign, and volunteer training, all in Los Angeles, related first to Proposition 8 and now gay marriage in California, from Sept. 2008 to the present.
