Since 2011, Rebecca Isaacs has been the Executive Director of the Equality Federation, the strategic partner to state-based organizations winning equality in the communities we call home. In that time, she has more than doubled the size of the organization — significantly growing the organization’s staff and programs to strengthen the states, build leaders, and advance critical issues. Significantly, she developed Equality Federation into a fully distributed organization, with staff located in states around the country, which has become a model for effective work on the ground in local communities.
Rebecca is an attorney and leading national advocate for justice and equality. Based in Los Angeles, Rebecca travels extensively to communities around the country fighting for equality and equity for LGBTQ people and our many allied communities. She has headed several leading social justice and LGBTQ organizations that have benefited from her expertise at building more effective and strategic institutions.
Rebecca’s service to the LGBTQ community has included her work on numerous boards and commissions including the Executive Committee of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, the National Coalition for LGBT Health, and the Los Angeles County Commission on Human Relations.
