Meet Imani Rupert-Gordon, the National Center for Lesbian Rights’ new executive director. A long-time social worker and activist for LGBTQ people of color, Rupert-Gordon took the helm at the ground-breaking SF-based feminist LGBTQ legal organization in March, just as COVID-19 hit full force. She speaks with Out in the Bay‘s Eric Jansen about NCLR’s current priorities, her vision for NCLR, intersectionality, the USPS and voter suppression as mail-in voting for the 2020 presidential election is threatened.
The National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) is the first national LGBTQ legal organization founded by women and has a longstanding commitment to racial and economic justice and our community’s most vulnerable. Since 1977, NCLR has been at the forefront of advancing the civil and human rights of our full LGBTQ community and their families through impact litigation, public policy, and public education.
