But even within this hostile climate, NCLR made historic gains this past year as a result of the Bostock decision, leading the movement to end conversion therapy, co-founding the LGBTQ Anti-Poverty Network, upholding and protecting marriage, and stepping into a leadership role in protecting youth embroiled in the foster care...
