The American Civil Liberties Union of Wisconsin (ACLU) has hired Milwaukee native Cassandra Bowers as Communications Director.  Cassandra will be responsible for planning and implementing statewide communications strategies for traditional broadcast and print media, along with online communication with ACLU members and supporters.

Cassandra holds a master’s degree in management with a concentration in leadership diversity from Cardinal Stritch University. Cassandra has a proven record of building long-term community relationships as she has spent over a decade dedicating her time to service around the city.

“In the 20 years since I volunteered for my first community project as a tutor at an inner city school, I have fallen in love with connecting with the public,” Cassandra said.  “As a member of the ACLU team, I feel fortunate to continue to work to build our city and state and for equity and justice for all people.”

“Cassandra’s communications experience in both business and education, and her talent for planning how to use the range of communications tools available today, really impressed us,” said Chris Ott, ACLU of Wisconsin Executive Director. “At this important time for our country and state, I’m really excited that she has joined the ACLU’s Wisconsin staff.”

Founded in 1930, the ACLU of Wisconsin is a private, nonpartisan organization with more than 24,000 supporters, who reside in every county in the state.
