ACLU of IN names executive director

ACLU of Indiana

Former Indianapolis Deputy Mayor Jane Henegar will lead the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana.

She most recently taught political science at Butler University and led the Indiana Bar Foundation’s Project Citizen, which teaches civics to Hoosier students in kindergarten through high school. 

Henegar served as interim director of the Coalition for Homelessness Intervention and Prevention following her service as Indianapolis deputy mayor from 2000 to 2006. 

She says she wants to partner more with other Constitution-driven organizations. Even if they don't agree on the same position, Henegar says they can promote the Constitution.

She succeeds Gilbert Holmes, who retired on March 31, 2012.  Henegar assumes the role full time in September.
