Alison Gill is Government Affairs Director at The Trevor Project, the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ youth, where she coordinates advocacy for mental health and well-being through policy initiatives at the federal, state, and local level. Prior to joining The Trevor Project, Alison was Public Policy Manager at the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN), where she focused on state and local school safety issues. Alison engages in local trans advocacy through Trans Legal Advocates of Washington (TransLAW). She is a graduate of Rutgers University, and received her J.D. from the George Washington University Law School.
Alison has coordinated coalition efforts in D.C. to pass anti-bullying legislation and (currently) legislation to prohibit conversion therapy for minors. Her professionalism, thoroughness, and graciousness make her a model of effective advocacy. It is my honor to present GLAA's Distinguished Service Award to Alison Gill.
