One of the many hats Executive Director Brian Silva wears for Marriage Equality USA is that of heading up our New York City Regional Organizing Committee.
A passionate leader, Brian has a steadfast dedication to LGBTIQ equality, to non-profit grassroots work, and to collaboration with other organizations. In addition to organizing local events and political actions, Brian can be seen biking across Manhattan on his way to any one of myriad meetings, or manning a phone at a NYC phone bank, working for the right-to-marry for LGBT couples in other states. Brian was honored in 2013 by our partner organization GetEQUAL for his work as a community ally. Hailing originally from Northern California, Brian currently lives with his partner Jonathan in New York City.
Tracy serves as the MEUSA Program Manager. She relocated from North Carolina to Brooklyn in order to work with MEUSA, shareing our Manhattan office with E.D. Brian Silva. In addition to the incredible amount of work Tracy does at the national level as our Program Manager, and managing our physical phone banks in New York City, Tracy works planning and implementing events in New York City, such as recruiting volunteers and staffing booths at PRIDE and the NYC GLBT Expo.
