The National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) has been around for 35 years. During that time, the organization has fought tirelessly for the rights of LGBT people. According to their website,
“In 1977, a brave and determined woman—fresh out of law school and eager to make a difference—decided to put her knowledge to good use. As a legal scholar, Donna Hitchens saw the courtroom as a way to change the world. As a lesbian, she had experienced frustrations and fears—both personal and professional—and didn’t want others to suffer the same. And as a future parent, she knew she would face even more challenges ahead.”
The NCLR has actively fought in court for the rights of LGBT citizens. View their case docket.
