Equality Federation Announces Fran Hutchins Hire

Dear Friends,
Equality Federation is extremely pleased to announce the hiring of Fran Hutchins as the Director of Member and State Services effective December 1st. Fran brings to the Federation more than ten years of experience with progressive non-profit organizations in the fields of LGBT rights, poverty, homelessness, and other social issues, as well as extensive academic research and writing experience.
Fran has worked on several state-level ballot measure campaigns in California and Maine. Most recently, she served as Regional Field Director for Mainers United for Marriage, the successful 2012 campaign to win marriage for same-sex couples in Maine.
Her involvement with state-level groups is part of what drew her to the position at the Federation. “In my work with Equality Maine,” says Fran, “I’ve seen the transformative effect state-level advocacy can have on small communities; this experience has reinforced my commitment to building powerful non-profit advocacy organizations and networks.”
In addition to her work in LGBT advocacy, Fran has worked as a Summer Associate with Jumpstart, a national early education organization, as a Policy and Planning Analyst for the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, and as the Development Coordinator for CHIRLA, a leading immigrant rights group.
Fran completed her MBA at the Isenberg School of Management at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where she focused her study on strategic and financial planning and will complete her Masters of Public Policy and Public Administration there in May 2013.
I am thrilled to have Fran on staff and am looking forward to the positive impact she will have on the Federation team and our member organizations. Please join me in welcoming Fran to Equality Federation.
In solidarity,

Rebecca Isaacs
Executive Director
