Saida took the helm of Funders for LGBTQ Issues in August 2021, and she is thrilled to have the opportunity to meet community in person! In her former role as the Vice President of Member Services at YWCA USA, Saida understands how to support a network of diverse constituents towards a common goal. As an activist and cultural worker, Saida has relentlessly uplifted the visibility of Black girls, women, and LGBTQ communities.
