Annise Parker Leads Victory Fund

The Victory Fund & Victory Institute announced that former Houston Mayor Annise Parker will be the new leader of the organizations. The transition comes as both organizations prepare for the critically important 2018 elections with more LGBTQ candidates running for elected office than ever before. Mayor Parker’s experience as a former elected official as well as decades of experience leading numerous organizations will position Victory Fund & Victory Institute to be a vital player in electing LGBTQ people in the years ahead. Parker stated, “Victory played such an important role in my political career, beginning with my run for Houston City Council through my campaign for mayor & I am thrilled about the opportunity to lead the organizations & help other LGBTQ elected officials win & make change. 2018 could be a historic year for our community with more openly LGBTQ people running for office in more places & I am confident we will be a difference-maker in helping these candidates across the finish line. I appreciate all Aisha has done to take the organizations to the next level, and am honored to continue to build on that success.” Kim Hoover One Victory Board Chair concluded, “As the first openly LGBTQ mayor of Houston, Annise understands the challenges inherent in running & winning elected office & she’s ideally positioned to help us fulfill our mission now & in the future.” Mayor Parker will begin serving as President & CEO of Victory Fund & Victory Institute on Monday, December 11th. The Victory Fund works to change the face & voice of America’s politics & achieve equality for LGBTQ Americans by increasing the number of openly LGBTQ elected officials at all levels of government.
