By Charlotte Robinson, March 10, 2020
This week I talked with Imani Rupert-Gordon the new Executive Director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) about her aspirations leading this important LGBTQ organization which is known for tackling the most pressing issues of race, gender & economic inequality facing our LGBTQ community. Founded in 1977 NCLR is a national legal organization committed to advancing the civil & human rights for LGBTQ people & their families through litigation, legislation, policy & public education. NCLR is a non-profit public interest law firm that litigates precedent-setting cases at the trial & appellate court levels; advocates for equitable public policies affecting our LGBTQ community; provides free legal assistance to LGBTQ people & their legal advocates & conducts community education on LGBTQ issues. NCLR serves more than 5,000 LGBTQ people & their families throughout the United States each year including LGBTQ parents, seniors, immigrants, athletes & youth. Currently NCLR is suing the State of South Carolina over an anti-LGBTQ Curriculum law around sex education. They are also very proud that their Born Perfect campaign to end Conversion Therapy which had a huge victory in Virginia last week becoming the first Southern state to do so. Earlier this month along with Debevoise & Plimpton LLP & Meyer Stephenson, NCLR won a landmark medical care lawsuit on behalf of a transgender employee. Previously Imani served as the Executive Director of Affinity Community Services, the nation’s oldest social justice organization serving the needs of Black LGBTQ people with a particular focus on Black women. I talked to Imani about what she hopes to accomplish as the new Executive Director of NCLR & her spin on our LGBTQ issues. LISTEN
