Board

FreeState Justice believes it is essential to have a Board of Directors that reflects the unique backgrounds and experiences of the LGBTQ+ Marylanders we serve. 

This is why we are committed to creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment where all of our board, staff, and volunteer committee members, regardless of their gender identity, sexual orientation, race, age, ethnicity, national origin, disability, or education, feel respected and valued across our organization. 

We are currently working to increase the representation of transgender, nonbinary, Black, and Latine/Latinx people on the Board to better ensure that the community we serve is embedded throughout our organization by actively recruiting community members to join one of our board committees. 

All interested community members can volunteer to join a FreeState Justice Board Committee as a non-board member.

In recruiting new Board members, we seek committed individuals who:

  • Provide the talent and skills needed to support the organization (i.e. governance, finance, litigation, policy advocacy, event planning, fundraising, equity, etc.)
  • Provide fiduciary support 
  • Represent the work we do and the communities we serve

FreeState Justice strives to recruit, nominate and approve new board members of diverse nationalities, ethnic backgrounds, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, education, and professional experience in order to establish an environment that reflects the community we serve.
