WASHINGTON — The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation, the educational arm of the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) civil rights organization, announced today that its Director of Religion & Faith, Michael Vazquez, was honored by the Center of American Progress as one of its “21 Faith Leaders to Watch in 2021.” The annual list celebrates those leaders—some well-known and others new on the scene—who are using their platforms to fight for justice.
Vazquez, Director of HRC’s Religion & Faith Program, is Catholic and lives in Washington, D.C. Before joining HRC, Vazquez was the Co-Executive Director of Brave Commons, which works to support LGBTQ rights on Christian college campuses. He holds a Master of Theological Studies from Duke University’s Divinity School.
