Civil Rights Leader.
Fighting for Us.
Rick Chavez Zbur has spent his life fighting for equality and justice — for LGBTQ+ people, immigrants, communities of color and faith and people living with HIV. Justice for our planet and for the communities most impacted by pollution and climate change. Economic justice for working families and our most vulnerable. Criminal justice and gun safety. Health justice for everyone.
Community service has always been a key part of Rick’s life and career. As a gay man, Rick saw hundreds of his friends become ill during the initial years of the AIDS crisis, which motivated him to become an AIDS activist at a time when our federal government was failing to act. As an environmental lawyer and Chair Emeritus of the California League of Conservation Voters, Rick has been a statewide leader working to combat climate change. And as Executive Director of Equality California, Rick has helped the nation's largest statewide LGBTQ+ civil rights organization expand its mission to include advancing civil rights and social justice for the diverse communities to which LGBTQ+ people belong — communities of color, communities of faith, immigrants, women and people living with HIV.Learn more
