Longtime Head of NJ’s ACLU Chapter Stepping Down

The longtime head of New Jersey’s American Civil Liberties Union chapter is leaving to work for a New York-based women’s group.

Deborah Jacobs (American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey)

 

Deborah Jacobs announced her intentions Tuesday in a statement issued by the ACLU.

Jacobs has been the state chapter’s executive director for 13 years. She’s leaving to become vice president for advocacy and policy at the Brooklyn-based Ms. Foundation for Women, where she will develop plans to advance gender equality.

Jacobs started her career at the ACLU in 1992, working as a junior staffer at its Washington state chapter. She later became head of the ACLU of Eastern Missouri before heading to New Jersey.
