"The Task Force Academy Fellowship taught me that I was capable of doing things I never imagined I could do. I learned I had the power to help other people realize their own potential to be leaders. If you want to learn how to build a big team of people, develop leaders, and are serious about building the power of the LGBT movement, this Fellowship is for you!"
– Anj Chaudhry, 2012 Task Force Organizing Fellow (now Lead Organizer, OutFront Minnesota)
