Matt Foreman, executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, will step down in April to oversee the Gay and Lesbian Program at the Evelyn and Walter Haas Jr. Fund, according to an NGLTF press release. A search for his replacement will begin immediately. "I will always love the Task Force, our work, our board, and our staff," Foreman said in the release. "I have no doubt that the Task Force will continue to be the uncompromising progressive voice of the LGBT movement and to thrive and help lead our community to complete equality."

Matt Foreman, executive director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, will step down in April to oversee the Gay and Lesbian Program at the Evelyn and Walter Haas Jr. Fund, according to an NGLTF press release. A search for his replacement will begin immediately.

"I will always love the Task Force, our work, our board, and our staff," Foreman said in the release. "I have no doubt that the Task Force will continue to be the uncompromising progressive voice of the LGBT movement and to thrive and help lead our community to complete equality."

During Foreman's five years as executive director, NGLTF expanded its programming and formed United ENDA, a coalition of more than 350 national, state, and local organizations opposing efforts to remove protections for transgender people from a federal nondiscrimination bill.

"During his tenure, our staff grew to 54 full-time positions and our budget more than doubled to nearly $10 million," Mark Sexton, cochairman of the organization, said in the release. "And most importantly, the Task Force has played an essential role in building our community's grassroots strength. He has truly been an inspiration to so many who believe in equality for the full breadth of the LGBT community." (The Advocate)
