The executive director of the Human Dignity Coalition announced yesterday that he will leave the organization.
Bruce Morris, who has led the nonprofit devoted to equality for members of the LGBTQ community since January 2011, said he will leave his position in mid-April to return to his career in law with a firm where he was formerly employed.
“I have been deeply honored to serve this community as HDC’s Executive Director, and am grateful for all the support and encouragement our community showed me and the Human Dignity Coalition during my term,” wrote Morris in an email outlining his decision.
He cited the need "to seek other employment to better provide for my family's increasing needs" as his reason for leaving the position. He added that he will continue to volunteer for the organization.
The coalition is now accepting applications for the executive director position through April 2.
