ACLU of Indiana to get new leader with long-time executive stepping down
The ACLU of Indiana will soon have a new leader for the first time in more than a decade.
Executive Director Jane Henegar announced she is stepping down no later than Jan. 1, 2024.
The former Indianapolis deputy mayor has led the organization since 2012. In that time, the ACLU of Indiana has helped secure rights for LGBTQ+ people, including same-sex marriage. The group also successfully fought against the state’s abortion restrictions before the U.S. Supreme Court ended guaranteed abortion rights.
Under Henegar’s leadership, the ACLU also launched an election campaign centered on voter rights and helped lead the charge against jail overcrowding.
