Quentin Hill joins the A Wider Bridge team in New York City as Northeast Manager
Quentin is looking forward to meeting many of you at our Summer Cocktail Reception on August 17th in Chelsea, featuring Roberta Kaplan and Israeli transgender leaders from Ma’avarim (RSVP Here, or see the invite below).
In his role as the Northeast Manager, Quentin will build LGBT connections to Israel through local programming and leadership development in New York City and across the Acela corridor.
Quentin has been working in LGBT, pro-Israel, and progressive advocacy since coming out in high school. Most recently, he served as the Political Engagement Director on the National Board of the Campus Democrats for a Secure Israel. Quentin is a recent graduate of the University of Iowa, where he served in multiple leadership positions, including with several prominent campus LGBTQ groups, the Iowa Hillel Board, and Hawkeyes for Israel. Quentin graduated from Iowa with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and a Religious Studies minor.
Speaking about his new role with A Wider Bridge, Quentin said, “I am very excited about this amazing opportunity to join the outstanding team at A Wider Bridge in New York. It is an incredible opportunity for me to take my passion for LGBTQ rights and for Israel, and turn them into a vehicle for change.
“It is essential that the LGBTQ community continue to be engaged and for bridges to be built between both Jewish and non-Jewish communities, here in North America and in Israel. I am thrilled to help offer opportunities for individuals to learn about Israel and share perspectives about the similar struggles between the LGBTQ communities in North America and Israel. I am looking forward to my work with the amazing team at A Wider Bridge and getting to know members of the LGBT, Jewish, and pro-Israel communities in New York and across the Northeast.”
