Equality New Mexico, a nonprofit organization focused on LGBTQ advocacy, announced in a recent Facebook post that it had put Carver, its executive director, on immediate administrative leave.
“We have heard and acknowledge the concerns of our community and partners,” the post said.
Joseph Samora, chair of Equality’s foundation board of directors, said that the board technically accepted Carver’s decision to go on leave. He said Carver announced that intention at the start of an emergency board meeting called last weekend over concerns raised “by many entities of the greater LGBTQ community in New Mexico.”
