Equality California congratulates Geoff Kors on his new position at the National Center for Lesbian Rights as Senior Legislative and Policy Strategist. Kors is the former executive director of Equality California, where he served from 2002 to 2011 and helped pass more than 70 pieces of legislation benefiting the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
"We are proud to congratulate Geoff Kors on his new position at the National Center for Lesbian Rights, where his expertise and passion will benefit LGBT people across the country. Equality California has always had a good relationship with NCLR, and bringing Geoff aboard will only enhance that relationship," said Clarissa Filgioun, EQCA board president. "We look forward to working with Geoff in his new role."
"We benefitted immensely from Geoff Kors' passionate and dedicated work, and we're glad that he will be able to bring that passion and dedication to other statewide groups," said Equality California Institute Board President Cary Davidson. "We know that Geoff will continue to advance LGBT equality in other states, as he did in California."
NCLR and EQCA have partnered on several bills, including this year's SB 1172, which will ban abusive anti-gay therapies for minors, and AB 2356, which guarantees equal access to fertility treatments for lesbian couples.
