Kathy Levinson is an executive coach and leadership consultant, while also serving as a member of the advisory board of venture capital firm Illuminate Ventures. Also a dedicated philanthropist, Kathy Levinson has worked with numerous LGBTQ-focused nonprofit entities, including the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR).

Established in 1977, NCLR represents members of the LGBT community in legal cases that address violations of their human and civil rights. The nonprofit also spends much of its time campaigning for LGBTQ policies and educating the community at large about the unique challenges that face this community. To this end, NCLR facilitates a number of public campaigns that promote the equality of LGBTQ individuals living throughout the United States.
One such initiative is the Rural Pride campaign, which hopes to bring increased awareness and protection to those in the LGBTQ community who live outside of America’s metropolitan areas. Nearly 10 percent of the country’s same-sex couples reside in rural America, where many of them live at the poverty level. The percentage of individuals living in poverty is even greater among the rural transgender community.
NCLR is using its Rural Pride campaign to address these vulnerabilities, working alongside policymakers at every level, to advocate for better LGBTQ resources in rural areas. The organization tackles these subjects at regular gatherings, during which time it also highlights upcoming legislation in support of the needs of this community.
