I have been inspired by Jody’s solid integrity & vision for our families & our country. Whether through our federal policy work together, standing side by side in marches & rallies for marriage & non-discrimination, or speaking out on the full range of issues affecting LGBTQ people & their families, the National LGBTQ Task Force & I have been honored to work with Jody.” Hodges announced that Elizabeth Kohm, currently Chief Operating Officer, has been appointed interim Executive Director.
