Alex Smith
Senior Policy Manager

Alex Smith brings eagerness and over a decade of federal, state, and local health policy experience to AIDS United as Senior Policy Manager.

Alex has devoted his career to the health and rights of marginalized communities through the coupling of sound public policy and the meaningful involvement of people living with HIV and other marginalized persons. After five years of supporting their prevention and advocacy efforts as a volunteer, Alex joined the staff of AIDS Alabama as their third Director of Policy and Advocacy. From leading the charge to legalize syringe services programs in Alabama to coordinating national efforts for HOPWA modernization, Alex helped shape AIDS Alabama's policy and advocacy department as a crucial voice from the South in federal HIV policy. Alex departed AIDS Alabama in early 2017 to serve as Executive Director for Equality Alabama through mid-2018, reviving the organization and positioning it as the movement leader for LGBTQ equality and rights in Alabama.

In his free time, Alex is an avid participant in the Washington DC league of Stonewall Sports, enjoys cooking and spending time with his three dogs (Joplin, a dachshund; Callie, a terrier; and Vida, a pit bull), and travels as often as possible with his husband Michael.
