A member of ABB’s staff since 2010, Jared has worked with advocates and coalitions to draft and pass dozens of state and local laws that guarantee paid sick time, paid family and medical leave, and emergency leave for COVID-19 and other public health emergencies.
In 2014, Jared co-founded ABB’s LGBTQ Rights and Family Recognition Project to advocate for the rights of LGBTQ workers, raise awareness about the diversity of family structures, and enact workplace policies that cover a range of caregiving relationships. Jared also launched ABB’s Defending Local Democracy Project, a nationwide effort to strengthen, protect, and defend progressive, local laws. Through this effort, he has worked closely with cities to prevent and challenge efforts to restrict local laws that guarantee paid leave, LGBTQ nondiscrimination, fair scheduling, and other work-family protections.
Jared graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Wesleyan University and cum laude from NYU School of Law. At NYU Law, he served as President of the HIV Law Society and volunteered with OUTLaw, the National Lawyers Guild, and Law Students for Human Rights. He was honored at NYU Law with the Ann Petluck Poses Memorial Prize for outstanding work in a clinical course requiring student practice. He resides in Denver, Colorado.
