Tonei Glavinic, National Center for Lesbian Rights 

My name is Tonei Glavinic, and I’m a junior from Anchorage, Alaska. I’m¬†double majoring in Political Science and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, as well as working on a Certificate in Women, Policy & Political Leadership.

This year, I’m a Nicholas J. Begich Policy Fellow at the National Center for

Lesbian Rights, or NCLR. Based in San Francisco, NCLR is a primarily legal organization focused on impact litigation like In Re: Marriage Cases (which led to California’s Prop. 8). The DC office works on federal legislation and public policy. Over the next six months or so, I’ll be working on a number of issues,¬†including employment and housing discrimination. Check here throughout the semester to learn more about the work I’m doing and the progress that NCLR is making on lesbian, gay, bisexual & transgender (LGBT) civil rights.
