Leadership LAB - Los Angeles LGBT Center

The Los Angeles LGBT Center is one of the leading organizations advancing civil rights and freedoms for LGBT people.

By mentoring and developing a new generation of leaders, domestically and internationally, we’re strengthening the global LGBT movement while we educate the public about LGBT issues, mobilize constituents, advance policy initiatives, and work with political leaders throughout the U.S. to promote equality and justice for LGBT people.

In schools throughout the country we’re leading efforts to help end anti-LGBT bigotry and even the thought of suicide among LGBT students. We’re also working to revolutionize the care and treatment of LGBT foster youth.

Throughout California we train social service providers, caregivers for seniors, government agencies, law enforcement officials, and others to help them better serve the diverse LGBT community.

Meet Margaret

I was looking for peace. I found the Center and have never left.

We’re helping communities throughout the country and around the world combat anti-LGBT prejudice.

The Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Leadership LAB (Learn Act Build) organizes and empowers communities to defeat anti-LGBT prejudice locally, supported by a volunteer corps of hundreds; nationally by providing assistance to LGBT-related campaigns throughout the country; and globally, by mentoring activists for LGBT equality from around the world. Learn more at the Leadership LAB website.

Our Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) is working to counter the influence of anti-LGBT activists primarily in the world’s most populous country, China, and to advance freedoms for LGBT people there by identifying the country’s best and brightest activists and hosting them for five-week long internships at the Center. In addition, the ELP has also worked with activists from other parts of the world, such as from Armenia, El Salvador, Jamaica, Japan, Kenya, and Poland.
