Dear Friends:

For nearly four years, the two of us have worked together to coordinate a grant from the State Equality Fund focused on developing campaign strategies that would advance nondiscrimination protections for the LGBTQ community. Our time at Equality Federation has been incredibly rewarding, but our project is now winding down, and we will be leaving the Federation at the end of December.

Given that we have spent more time with each other during these four years than with almost any other human being on the planet, we thought it only fitting that we should share news of our departure in a joint letter to all of you.

We have worked with a top notch staff and board and with amazing state and national partners across the country. We have learned so much from each of you and have been inspired daily by your commitment and passion for this work. While much work still remains, we should all be proud of what we have accomplished together.

The State Equality Fund could have housed this project anywhere, but they chose the Federation because of its unique role within our movement. We wish our Federation colleagues all the best as they take the organization into the next phase of its work—they are an impressive team that does so much to keep our movement winning. We each hope our paths cross again with yours in the next phases of our own work.
