Jarrett Lucas, Executive Director

Jarrett Lucas joined the Stonewall team in July 2010. Previously, he had spent a decade organizing in movements centering women, LGBTQ people, and communities of color. He has worked with an extensive roster of groups, from local to international, including INCITE!, Soulforce, and the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance. Jarrett is an advisor to social justice and arts patron, the Rubin Foundation, and has held leadership on a number of nonprofit boards, recently serving as Vice Chair at the Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice.

In addition to dozens of arrests for civil disobedience, Jarrett’s activism has garnered three Congressional tributes and been profiled in the award-winning documentary Equality U and PBS’s Generation Next 2.0. A trained engineer, Jarrett has a passion for innovation, be it applied to technology or movement building. He lives in the Inwood neighborhood of Manhattan.


Lauren Todd Martin, Operations & Finance Director

Lauren Todd Martin has been with Stonewall since April 2011. As an activist, feminist, and social justice advocate, Lauren has centered her career in nonprofit work that amplifies the voices and work of those who have been marginalized by society. As an ally, she finds her work most rewarding by providing the administrative support necessary to hold up the programmatic work of the Foundation. She has accumulated over a decade of experience in nonprofit management in finance and operations. Just prior to her work with Stonewall, she worked for a theater company for children with disabilities.

Originally from the SF Bay Area, Lauren received her BA from Scripps College in Claremont, CA and was soon after lured to the East Coast where she has made her life as a New Yorker.  She lives with her husband and child in Brooklyn.


Gattlin Miller, Development & Comms Coordinator

Gattlin Miller started his work with Stonewall in January 2017. Prior to Stonewall, Gattlin provided fundraising support to AIDS Walk New York, the US Fund for UNICEF, and to higher education institutions throughout the country. With several years of nonprofit development experience under his belt, Gattlin is thrilled to be putting his dedication to the LGBTQ community into action for an organization as innovative and vital as Stonewall.

Now a career bleeding heart, Gattlin has been a vocal advocate for marginalized communities since high school, when he spent a year delivering polio vaccines to individuals in impoverished regions of South India. While pursuing his Bachelor’s degree at Fordham University in New York, Gattlin solidified his commitment to the queer community as an active member of campus LGBTQ and feminist groups. Gattlin is a proud Minnesotan, and currently resides in Brooklyn.

Carlie Steen joined Stonewall in September 2014. She brings more than 20 years of experience in the nonprofit sector, with expertise in fundraising, policy and advocacy, and organizational and program development.
