Director of Latino and Catholic Initiatives

Lisbeth Melendez Rivera is the Religion and Faith Program’s Director of Latino and Catholic Initiatives. Before joining us full-time, she was working closely with our program for two years as the National Coordinator for the A la Familia project, training and empowering Latino/as throughout the country around LGBT issues. She envisioned and directed Before God: We Are All Family, a powerful short documentary that she has shared with Latino/a communities across the country. As the Director of Latino and Catholic Initiatives, Lisbeth will deepen the already impressive reach of her work with Latino/a communities and will in addition help us to develop and implement Catholic engagement work across the organization.
