June 5: Meet Karen Anderson, New Executive Director of the ACLU-NC
The Board of Directors of the ACLU of North Carolina today announced that it has hired Karen Anderson as our organization's new Executive Director.
A passionate civil libertarian with a strong leadership background, Karen is joining us from New Hampshire, where she has spent the last 15 years as Director of Administration and Finance for the Office of the New Hampshire Public Defender. In that role, she had primary responsibility for all corporate, financial, and business matters, including strategic planning, human resources and more.
Karen is also no stranger to the ACLU: she currently serves as President of the Board of the ACLU of New Hampshire and previously served as that affiliate's representative on the National ACLU Board.
Karen will officially begin as Executive Director of the ACLU of North Carolina on July 25, but our members and supporters will have an opportunity to meet her in person at our annual membership meeting in just a few weeks. Please join us!
