Posted By on Thu, Oct 30, 2008 at 9:21 AM

Monica Hopkins, who has worked in several local nonprofit organizations, will take the helm at the American Civil Liberties of Idaho on Dec. 1.

“The work of the ACLU has never been more relevant, and I am deeply honored and humbled to lead the ACLU’s efforts throughout our state,” Hopkins said, in a press release.

Hopkins replaces Jack Van Valkenburgh, who stepped down in May; she will be the group's second executive director in its 18-year history.

According to an annoucnement from the ACLU:
After moving to Boise from San Francisco in 1997, Hopkins worked as Director of Development for Planned Parenthood of Idaho and Executive Director of the Fund for Idaho, a progressive grantmaking foundation. As the Director of Development & Communications for the Friends of Zoo Boise, she completed a $3.7 million capital campaign to build an African Plains Exhibit, increased membership by 23%, and updated the organization’s technology and communications practices.
