Reports & Research
The Task Force's Policy Institute conducts groundbreaking research and policy analysis on hot-button issues affecting the LGBT community. We have everything from full reports to fact sheets to our very popular graphic issue maps. (Now in black and white AND color!)
If you know exactly what you’re looking for, it’s probably easiest for you to go to a particular section right off the bat: reports, issue maps, or fact sheets. But if you're not sure, or just want to look around, go to the main "Reports and Research" page . Under the "Featured Report" you'll see a search bar. You can either search for a report by name, or by type of report or by a particular issue. If you want to see everything we have to offer—and it is a lot—just look under the search bar. All of our publications are listed there in chronological order.
The Task Force and the Task Force Action Fund are continually coming out with new publications, so check back often for the latest up-to-the-minute facts and figures.
