Blaine Stum: Spokane local taking a stand for human rights.

Blaine Stum, Chair of the Spokane Human Rights Commission for the City of Spokane and Chair of the Public Policy Committee with INBA, manages to be one of the most influential young voices in Spokane’s LGBT community.

Blaine was recently nominated as employee of the quarter by a member of the Mayor’s cabinet.

As the legislative aide to councilman Jon Snyder, Blaine is familiar with the inner workings of Spokane’s political system. He constantly offers a strong voice for LGBT equality. In response to the assault of a transgender woman in downtown Spokane, Blaine organized and publicized an extremely well-attended open forum at the city council meeting. Pictured above, Blaine leads a rally for acceptance of transgender individuals and increased attention from city hall.

INBA is successful thanks to human rights advocates and activists like Blaine who unceasingly contribute to public policy and non-profits dedicated to acceptance and tolerance. Thank you, Blaine, for all you do.

Although Blaine keeps a very busy schedule, you can see what’s hot on his mind through his weekly column with Spokane Faith & Values at blainestum.spokanefavs.com
