Donna Lieberman

*Donna Lieberman has been executive director of the New York Civil Liberties Union since December 2001. Under her leadership, the NYCLU has expanded the scope and depth of its work, using litigation, advocacy, and state-wide organizing to promote civil rights and civil liberties. Among the NYCLU’s many accomplishments during her tenure are protecting the right to counsel, reforming stop and frisk and solitary confinement, repealing the 50a secrecy law for law enforcement, representing Edie Windsor to win marriage equality, expanding abortion rights, winning voting rights in East Ramapo school board elections, overhauling conditions in the psychiatric emergency rooms in Kings County Hospital Center, and founding the Education Policy Center and the Teen Activist Program. 

The NYCLU is widely recognized as the state’s leading voice for freedom, justice, and equality, advocating for those whose rights and liberties have been denied. 

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 served as executive director of the Association of Legal Aid Attorneys. For a decade, she served on the faculty of Urban Legal Studies Program at City College. She joined the NYCLU in 1989 and was the founding director of its Reproductive Rights project.
