RiseOut Advocacy Council
The RiseOut Advocacy Council works in collaboration with RiseOut, The Center’s statewide LGBTQ advocacy initiative, as a cohort of diverse thought leaders across progressive sectors. Council members convene monthly to support organizational partners and volunteer initiatives on behalf of RiseOut’s advocacy objectives. Together, council members provide feedback and help to ensure that advocacy mobilization efforts can effectively reach and broadly engage the LGBTQ community statewide.
Council members will:
- Act as ambassadors of the RiseOut advocacy initiative to support the advancement of LGBTQ rights in New York
- Leverage professional and community relationships to build broad public support for advocacy priorities
- Share public education campaigns through digital engagement to further campaign objectives
- Provide feedback on emerging advocacy strategies, trends, and challenges
Council members also have opportunities to connect with policymakers and advocates across the progressive landscape, and are offered an honorarium for their participation.
