NNEDV Welcomes New President and CEO, National Women's Advocate Kim Gandy

kgandy_photoNNEDV is pleased to announce the selection of Kim Gandy as its new president and CEO.

As a national leader and advocate for women, Kim brings a proven track record of guiding organizations seeking to raise awareness about the prevalence of violence against women, while bringing about legislative reform and equal protection under the law.

From her years as a young activist in her native Louisiana, to her work prosecuting violent offenders, to her role in the passage of the Violence Against Women Act, Kim has remained dedicated to ensuring that women have the opportunity to lead safe, healthy and prosperous lives.  Her long career in advocacy, legislative reform and coalition-building includes areas such as civil rights, women's rights and specifically violence against women.

Kim was most recently vice president of and general counsel for the Feminist Majority and the Feminist Majority Foundation.  She also spent 22 years as a top leader of the National Organization for Women (NOW), including two terms as NOW president.

Please join us in welcoming and congratulating Kim by tweeting us at @NNEDV and @Kim_Gandy.
