He, Him, His

Wergeles oversees finance, administration, and operations. In this capacity he is responsible for making sure that our donated revenue is wisely and efficiently invested in our organization allowing our dedicated and talented staff to advocate, litigate, communicate, and organize to fight for equal protection under the law for all continually expanding what equality means in our nation.

In mid-career, Wergeles transitioned from the for-profit world to the non-profit sector where he uses his sales, marketing and business management skills to enhance fundraising and business operations. He is proud that as a member of the ACLU-SDIC team, he helps to build a better and more equitable society for all.

Prior to joining the ACLU, Wergeles served as the development director at The San Diego LGBT Community Center and KPBS TV/FM.

Wergeles lives with his spouse, Sal, a public health nurse, in University Heights.
