GLAD provides a supportive and friendly work environment dedicated to groundbreaking achievement for LGBTQ identifying people and people living with HIV. Recent community support projects include maintaining a general COVID-19 resource list and set of FAQs focused on family protections. GLAD is proud of recent victories modernizing family and parentage laws by introducing or passing legislation in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.
Other work in progress is focused on passing the Equality Act through a collaborative effort to extend protections of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. GLAD has also deepened and sharpened their focus on racial justice work, including through reforming and dismantling systems that we know disproportionately harm LGBTQ BIPOC, such as the criminal justice, juvenile justice, and child welfare systems. GLAD offers staff opportunities to affect change on the interconnections of race and LGBTQ status through their day-to-day work, professional development opportunities, and participation in our Racial and Economic Justice Working Group and GLAD for Economic Opportunity (GEO) committee.
