This weekend in Chicago, I took the stage at our 53rd National Convention to introduce Virginia Kase, the next Chief Executive Officer of the League of Women Voters of the United States!
With more than 20 years’ experience working in the non-profit sector, she is a passionate activist and advocate for social justice.
Virginia is currently the Chief Operating Officer of CASA, an organization at the forefront of the immigrant rights movement representing nearly 100,000 members. In her position as COO she has driven the strategic growth, direction, and operations of the organization fighting for Latino and immigrant rights. Virginia started her career in nonprofit at the age of 23 when she co-founded the Hartford Youth Peace Initiative in an effort to help reduce gang violence in her hometown of Hartford, CT.
I am thrilled to share with you that Virginia will start in her new role with the League on July 25th.
Please join me in welcoming Virginia to the League!
