The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Foundation, founded in 1973, is a nonprofit organization that works to provide equality to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. The organization trains activists and equips state and local organizations with skills needed to organize broad-based campaigns to defeat anti-LGBT referenda. Its Policy Institute provides research and policy analysis to support the struggle for equality and to counter right-wing lies. The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Foundation also develops winning campaign strategies in the legislature. The organization fights for various issues, including aging, bisexuality, faith, transgender and HIV/AIDS. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., it operates offices in New York City, Los Angeles, Miami and Minneapolis.
