Fox’s Brian McGinnis Appointed to Democratic National Committee’s LGBT Advisory Board

October 12, 2016 – Press Releases

Fox Rothschild LLP is proud to announce that Brian McGinnis has been appointed to the Democratic National Committee’s LGBT Advisory Board.

This newly created board complements the Democratic Party’s existing national organizing structure with a body of LGBT Democrats from all 50 states, allowing “two-way conversations” with LGBT communities across the country and enhancing efforts to mobilize community members on behalf of LGBT-friendly candidates and policy issues at all levels.

In this role, McGinnis will work with regional chairs and other members to ensure that information flows back and forth between the community, local and regional party officials and the DNC’s Director of LGBT Engagement.

In his practice at Fox, McGinnis advises businesses on a wide range of employment law issues, including the adoption of policies and practices designed to avoid lawsuits and how to respond when the inevitable suit is filed. He also guides clients in the drafting of employee handbooks and workplace polices, and has particular experience with issues involving transgender employees in the workplace and counseling employers on transgender legal issues and best practices.

Prior to practicing law, Brian worked in government and politics and for issue-oriented nonprofits and public interest campaigns, with a particular focus on LGBT rights issues. A veteran of numerous political campaigns at the statewide, legislative, county and local levels, he also previously served as South Jersey Director to Garden State Equality, New Jersey’s leading LGBTQ civil rights advocacy organization.
