As Director of Cathedral Programs, Michelle Dibblee leads the Cathedral’s civic programming, including events related to veterans and racial justice, interfaith connections, and other faith and public life content. She partners with external organizations to bring new speakers and audiences to the Cathedral.
Michelle comes to the Cathedral with more than 15 years of nonprofit and community organizing experience in Minnesota, New York City, and Washington, D.C.. During Minnesota’s historic 2012 campaign for marriage equality, she supported 5 field teams around the state to train thousands of volunteers to have conversations about the freedom to marry. In Washington D.C., she co-founded the local chapter of Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ), a national network organizing white people for racial justice as part of a multi-racial movement.
Michelle lives in the District with her wife, the Rev. Michele Morgan, rector at St. Mark’s on Capitol Hill. In addition to worshipping at the Cathedral and St. Mark’s, she attends St. Stephen and the Incarnation Episcopal Church.
