I joined the board of Rainbow Health Initiative because it is unique in its mission. We conduct research, educate and advocate for the LGBTQ community so that our health needs may be better served. Health care is an emerging battleground in the fight for civil rights and LGBTQ needs have been ignored too long. I am proud to be part of an organization on the cutting edge and to work with a highly committed board and staff. We are tiny in size but achieve great impact through collaborations and partnerships with numerous organizations and institutions. A dollar at RHI is multiplied tenfold through this leveraging of resources.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

reviewing the multi year research on health needs in the LGBTQ community in Minnesota.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Improve fundraising capacity in order to obtain more unrestricted funds.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the commitment and energy of the staff and board members.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

smart, educated, and well informed.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the way LGBTQ people are able to access health care.

Ways to make it better...

we had more people on the board and board level committees.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

developing sources for unrestricted operating funds.

One thing I'd also say is that...

RHI is a unique organization in the work that it does - health care is a crucial part of achieving LGBTQ civil rights!
