Meet the Board Members
I began attending PFLAG meetings in 2013 and joined the board in 2015. I’m active in PFLAG because this caring community of LGBTQ people, their families and allies, is a wonderful place to address needs of support, advocacy, and education. I’m inspired by our monthly meetings and by our involvement in the local community. I’m passionate about fostering connection and community, so you might also find me working with my teen children and their youth community. You could fine me organizing a pancake breakfast, joining a community sing-along, or teaching an artistic embroidery class.
Bill & Marie Libby,
We have been members for over 25 years and consider ourselves activists because of our ongoing involvement with area universities, schools, government, and the Hudson's First Congregational Church. We stay committed because we continue to hear the stories shared at PFLAG meetings and want to make a difference. We both deliver Mobile Meals to those in need. Marie serves as a CASA/GAL in Summit County Juvenile Court. Bill is active in Rotary and Family Promise.
I have been an Akron PFLAG member for 13-14 years and a board member for over 10. I represent Akron on the newsletter that is published jointly with Cleveland PFLAG, and I am always happy to receive information about local LGBTQ events and news so that it can be publicized. I am a retired social worker and am active with the Twinsburg Historical Society. My main focus in life is my family. Knowing that any of my four grandchildren could be LGBTQ has heightened my desire to work towards a world where people of all differences are treated equal.
