... Caily DiPuma

Dear friends and supporters,

I am honoured to accept the nomination of my fellow Board members to serve again as the President of the Board of Directors of the British Columbia Civil Liberties Association. I am excited to lead the organization at this transformational time.

I am also happy to announce that Maggie Knight, our Operations Director, will serve as our Acting Executive Director upon Josh Paterson’s departure. Maggie will lead the BCCLA while our transition team undertakes an extensive search for our next Executive Director.

Maggie Knight

I am confident that Maggie’s decade of experience in advocacy organizations, combined with her years as an integral part of the BCCLA’s staff leadership team and expertise in managing our growing finances and staff team will ensure a successful transition for the BCCLA. I hope you will join me in welcoming her to this new role.

As we shared in June, the BCCLA recently completed its first ever 5-year strategic plan, setting out an ambitious vision for our organization. We will continue to lead on issues of policing and criminal justice, privacy and national security, prisoners’ rights, fundamental freedoms and the advancement of equality. We will seek to expand our work strengthening democratic rights and inclusion, resisting authoritarianism and the threats posed by rapid technological change. We have committed to making equity, diversity and inclusion core elements of our decision-making, in how we run our organization, and in our work in the world.

This strategic vision is only possible because of the values and commitment of our members and supporters. My goal as President is to deepen the connection between our organization, our supporters, and the communities we serve.

We live at a critical moment for human rights and we need your continued support to help us rise to the challenge. Together, we continue our 57-year legacy of fighting to preserve, defend and extend civil liberties in Canada.

In hope and solidarity,

Caily DiPuma

President
