My name is Randy Feuerstein and I am writing with some exciting news. As Chair of Immigration Equality’s Board of Directors and a decade-long supporter of the organization’s lifesaving work, I am honored to announce that our Legal Director Aaron C. Morris is taking the helm of the organization as Executive Director.

Aaron will be replacing Caroline Dessert, who for the last year and a half worked diligently as Executive Director to serve our community. With her leadership, we nearly doubled the number of clients receiving legal services, launched a groundbreaking Pro Se program to provide LGBTQ and HIV-affected immigrants with resources, and advocated to end the detention of LGBTQ people. We warmly thank her for her service.

Aaron joined Immigration Equality in 2008 and has been directing our law and policy programs for several years. He is a strategic and visionary leader of the organization, and I cannot wait to see all we will accomplish together in the year ahead.

I hope you’ll join me in congratulating Aaron on his new role!

Best regards,

Randy Feuerstein
Board Chair, Immigration Equality
