Stonewall Democrats Hire a New Executive Director

We have some exciting news at Stonewall.

After a thorough and comprehensive search, the Board of Directors of National Stonewall Democrats has hired Michael Mitchell to lead our organization as Executive Director.

Michael's vision for the organization -- that we can build and sustain an army of grassroots leaders at the local and state level to elect pro-equality Democrats and hold them accountable -- has been honed during two decades of service to the LGBT community. He comes to us having served as Executive Director of Equality Utah, the marriage campaign manager for the ACLU's LGBT Project, and the advocacy and planning specialist for the Equality Federation, where he worked with statewide LGBT organizations to create and implement effective strategic plans for policy change.

His experience working to harness the power of grassroots activists across the country makes him a perfect fit for Stonewall. We're excited to have someone with such vision and experience on board, leading our passionate staff to make sustainable change in communities, counties, and states across the country.

We hope you’ll join us in welcoming Michael Mitchell to our family.
