The LGBT Community Center of New Orleans is excited to welcome our newest board member, Ariel David. As a veteran and an experienced community advocate, Ariel lends critical skills and perspective to our organization. She said:
I am thrilled to be involved in what the LGBT Community Center is doing. Increasing Greater New Orleans Area community collaboration is vital for us to provide better support and services to our community members. And as a veteran, I am particularly excited about expanding our efforts to address the needs of our local LGBTQ military and veteran population, who face some unique challenges and concerns of their own.”
