Be the Change You Want to See

San Francisco Leadership Council Provides Voice for Local Community
Over the past few years, GLAAD has worked to institute a policy of thinking globally, but acting locally. Through the seven GLAAD Leadership Councils in Boston, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Los Angeles, New York, South Florida and San Francisco, GLAAD is able to expand our work within the local community.

Make Your Gift Go Further
