“My work is driven by a deep underlying belief that we need to continuously strive to build a world where human rights, especially the individual right to make choices, regardless of sex, gender, sexual orientation, race, age, or belief, are adhered to. For the past 13 years, I have the privilege of working for an organization that has the courage and ability to do just that.”
