Executive Director Ted Martin to leave Equality Pa. on June 30

At its board of directors meeting on June 4, 2017, the Board of Directors of Equality Pennsylvania accepted the resignation of Executive Director Ted Martin.  Martin’s last day with the organization will be June 30, 2017.
     “It has been a tremendous honor for me to serve as executive director. I never foresaw myself staying for seven years back in 2010, but I am glad I did,” said Martin.
     During Martin’s seven-year tenure, the organization grew from a small regional operation to a statewide organization.  In those years, Pennsylvania changed dramatically for LGBTQ people and Equality PA was the engine that drove many of the battles and efforts and conversations that made great things happen.
