ACLU names new director of campaigns for tri-state region

Sabrina King has been named director of campaigns for the American Civil Liberties Union of South Dakota, North Dakota and Wyoming.

In this new role, King will be responsible for developing and implementing effective, non-partisan issue campaign strategies to defend and strengthen civil liberties and civil rights throughout South Dakota, North Dakota and Wyoming.

King will coordinate with and work alongside ACLU state-based staff in each of the three states as well as partner organizations and impacted communities on campaign implementations.

King’s work will initially include the ACLU’s free speech/indigenous rights campaign surrounding the Keystone XL pipeline in South Dakota and the campaign to repeal the death penalty in Wyoming.

King joined the ACLU in 2016 as the policy director for the ACLU of Wyoming. In this role, King managed the chapter’s on-the-ground work to accomplish its policy goals and played an instrumental role in the ACLU’s participation in campaigns like WyoSayNo, a coalition dedicated to stopping a proposed immigration prison.

Prior to joining the ACLU, King worked as an organizer and lobbyist for Dakota Rural Action, representing family farmers and ranchers in South Dakota on issues ranging from food freedom and access to fighting the Keystone XL pipeline.
