Championing Community | Lorri L. Jean, CEO, Los Angeles LGBT Center￼
As CivitasLA celebrates Pride Month 2022, we are joined by Lorri L. Jean, CEO of the Los Angeles LGBT Center, recognized as one of the most seasoned and effective LGBTQ leaders in the country. Starting from humble beginnings, with a budget of just under $8 million in 1993 when she arrived, her leadership has witnessed an exponential growth in resources to the Center and a significant growth in services to the community.
Since 1969, the Los Angeles LGBT Center (www.lalgbtcenter.org/about) has celebrated and championed LGBTQ+ individuals and families throughout the greater Los Angeles region, with a team of nearly 800 professionals serving community across ten locations, supported by a budget of nearly $150 million. As she prepares to retire, Lorri reflects on her decades of advocacy on behalf of the LGBTQ+ community and her leadership in elevating the LA LGBT Center to becoming one of the most significant non-profit organizations in the U.S.
