Aisha Moodie-Mills To Become Victory Fund President and CEO!

Y’all know I have much love for the fabulous Aisha Moodie-Mills, her spouse Danielle, and all her fabulousness as one of the  amazing human rights leaders that I admire in this community.

I was thrilled to learn that she will become the new president and CEO of the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund.

She is well suited for this job.  She was previously at the Center for American Progress, where she served as a
senior fellow and director of the FIRE Initiative that explores the
intersections of race, class, and sexuality. She has worked as a
political advisor, private-sector liaison, and fundraiser to more than
50 members of Congress, including six senators and the Congressional
Black Caucus. Before joining American Progress, she was the president of
Synergy Strategy Group, a boutique fundraising and political consulting
firm where she raised millions of dollars for candidates and advocacy
organizations.

“We believe that Aisha is exactly the person Victory needs to usher in
an innovative and holistic approach to creating a pipeline for
exceptional LGBT leadership and public officials,” said Kim Hoover,
chair of the Victory Fund board. “To us, Aisha represents the future of
the LGBT movement. We are at a pivotal moment and in order to continue
our momentum we need the insight and energy that Aisha brings to the
job.”

“The National Black Justice Coalition is overjoyed that one of our own
community members has been elevated to lead the important work of the
Victory Fund. Aisha Moodie-Mills will be a phenomenal addition to one of
our nation’s premier LGBT organizations, working to ensure broader
representation of LGBT people in elected office. As a black lesbian,
Aisha will bring new hope to women, African Americans and other people
of color who seek greater opportunities within the LGBT community with
her vast talents and dynamic leadership style. NBJC looks forward to
continuing to partner with the Victory Fund as Mrs. Moodie-Mills takes
the helm as their new president and chief executive officer.”
