Senior Program Manager: Human Rights Campaign
Class of 2011
Michael Toumayan joined the Human Rights Campaign in Washington, D.C. in 2012, the largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Americans. As the manager of HRC’s Religion and Faith Program, Michael has spearheaded much of the work with conflicted minority religious communities in the United States, adding a whole new level of experience to HRC’s Religion and Faith advocacy work. He is committed to creating a world where nobody is forced to choose between who they are, who they love and what they believe. In 2017, Michael became a Senior Manager.
As a native Jerusalemite Armenian, he finds time to devote tireless efforts to other social justice issues close to his heart, particularly, racism, human rights, finding a just resolution to the Israel-Palestine conflict, and international recognition of the Armenian Genocide.
Michael received his M.A. in Conflict Resolution and Mediation from Tel Aviv University in 2011, and currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Institute for Multi-Track Diplomacy-East in Tel Aviv, Israel.
