The Los Angeles March on Washington Committee formed in 1979, changed its name in November to the Los Angeles Committee for the March on Sacramento, and in February 1980 to the March Committee for Gay and Lesbian Rights/Los Angeles. A grassroots organization with a mission to build the lesbian and gay rights movement, the committee operated at least through the National Conference on Lesbian & Gay Rights on April 24-26, 1981, and was mentioned in a 1982 proposal for a second March on Washington.
