National LGBTQ+ Task Force

The National LGBTQ Task Force advances full freedom, justice and equality for LGBTQ people. We are building a future where everyone can be free to be their entire selves in every aspect of their lives. Today, despite all the progress we’ve made to end discrimination, millions of LGBTQ people face barriers in every aspect of their lives: in housing, employment, healthcare, retirement, and basic human rights. These barriers must go. That’s why the Task Force is training and mobilizing millions of activists across our nation to deliver a world where you can be you. Join us!

Internship Description

The Creating Change Intern works on a variety of tasks, including participation in planning meetings for Creating Change, management of inventory and supply lines and data management pertinent to the Conference. The fellowship organizing work will emphasize: side-by-side work with current Task Force staff; relationship-building with people of faith, including faith leaders in key faith communities; and a desire to understand working at the intersections of faith and other identities such as race, age, gender identity and expression with faith community-based partners through trainings, events and spiritual practice.

This experience will be grounded in presenting knowledge, skill-building and attitude enhancement with our partners and their communities. Our faith-in-action strategy is to work in the cross-sections of three tactics: visibility, community building and education, and, advocacy actions. Participants will learn skills, context setting and specific content and how to apply these with faith communities in a genuine and transformational way. All of the work will be values-based, some Christian-centered and some interfaith organizing work. Participants will outreach to a wide group of spiritual communities including but not limited to: Buddhist, Muslim, Jewish, Humanist, Christian, Hindu and Taoist.
