Urvashi Vaid Steps Up (AUDIO)

LPAC, the first lesbian Political Action Committee founded in 2012 announced that Urvashi Vaid, longtime attorney & organizer in LGBTQ & social justice movements will serve as the organization’s Interim Executive Director as the search for a permanent Executive Director begins. Laura Ricketts, LPAC Board Chair stated, “We are very pleased to have Urvashi as our interim leader, with all her expertise, insuring continuity for LPAC over the next few months, while we search for and find our new leader.” A Board search committee has been formed & is chaired by LPAC San Francisco based Board member Joyce Newstat, a long-time political activist & leader in the LGBT movement. The search process & timeline will be announced later this year. Newstat stated, “Our new Executive Director will lead LPAC at a critically important time for the LGBT community, women & all those impacted by the hostile political climate in Washington, D.C. & across the nation. As we approach the 2018 mid-term elections & beyond, LPAC must grow & be even more engaged in supporting progressive candidates who advance our core values of LGBT equality, women’s rights & gender, social & racial justice.” Vaid has held senior executive positions at the Arcus Foundation, the Ford Foundation & the National LGBTQ Task Force.
