I have a change in my life that I am incredibly excited to share with you. Today, I will join the Change.org team, as the Organizing Manager for LGBT Rights.
I am thrilled to join Change.org because they are working for full equality and so many other issues I care deeply about - like the environment, human rights, education, and sustainable food.
It is an exciting time to join the team. More than 300,000 new members a month are joining Change.org and adding to the voices that successfully encouraged Apple to remove a "gay cure" app from their app store, that are urging the postal service to honor Harvey Milk with a stamp, and who are demanding that the employees on duty at McDonald's be held responsible in the beating of a trans woman.
I am thrilled that I will be working with Michael Jones who will continue to freelance with Change.org, and Eden James, the Director of Organizing at Change.org. I have tremendous respect and admiration for both of these outstanding members of our community.
I was immediately attracted to the opportunity at Change.org because I believe in their philosophy. When enough voices come together and demand change, anything is possible.
I am also honored that I will be able to work with so many people like you who care about a future where everyone is treated equally regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. This is an exciting time in our movement. We have tools that never existed before at our disposal, and access to hundreds of thousands of hearts and minds at the click of a button. I have no doubt, that when all of us work together, we will achieve the change we so desperately need, not only here at home but throughout the world.
