OUR LEADERSHIP

JASON LINDSAY | EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Jason is founder and executive director of Pride Fund. Having served in Iraq as a member of the U.S. Army Reserve, Jason saw first-hand the devastation possible with weapons of war. He intimately understands the weapons sold today on our streets based on his experience serving in the U.S. Army Reserve for 14 years.
 
Jason is a seasoned political operative with 12 years of experience working in politics, government, and campaigns. Prior to establishing Pride Fund, Jason served as a Congressional Relations Officer for the Department of Veterans Affairs where he was the chief liaison on government affairs and strategic advisor to senior leaders of the VA. He represented the Department to Members of Congress and their staff and managed an issue portfolio of nearly $2 billion dollars in annual operating funds, which included 56 regional offices and 15,000 employees that serve nearly 4 million veteran customers.
 
After much reflection and in response to the tragedy in Orlando, Jason knew it was time for action. His vast political experience and passion for preventing future gun tragedies drove him to create Pride Fund—the LGBTQ's community voice in the fight against gun violence.
 
Jason received his undergraduate degree in Political Science from North Carolina State University and is nearing completion of his master’s degree in Government at the Johns Hopkins University.
