Donna E. Lieberman

New York Civil Liberties Union
Executive Director
New York, NY, USA

Donna Lieberman has been Executive Director of the New York Civil Liberties Union since December 2001. She previously served as Associate Director from 1988 to 1993 and founder/director of the NYCLU Reproductive Rights Project from 1990 to 2000.

Under Lieberman's leadership, the NYCLU has expanded the scope and depth of its work, supplementing the pursuit of litigation with an aggressive legislative advocacy and a field organizing program. As a result, the organization is widely recognized as the state's leading voice for freedom, justice and equality - advocating for those whose rights and liberties have been denied, especially for those most marginalized by society.

Lieberman began her public interest legal career as a criminal defense lawyer in the South Bronx office of the Legal Aid Society, and she later acted as Executive Director of the Association of Legal Aid Attorneys. She served on the faculty of the Urban Legal Studies Program at City College for nearly a decade.
