Freedom Inc. has recently had a shift in their leadership with the departure of co-executive director M Adams. Co-executive Director Kabzuag Vaj sent out a letter that outlined how the organization has been working during the pandemic and George Flyod and Breonna Taylor uprisings. She also outlined how it has been working internally, “strengthening out organizational operations, and preparing for leadership transitions.”
M was with Freedom Inc. for 14 years, starting as an intern and working her way up to co-director and is leaving to become an executive leader at M4BL, a nationwide abolitionist and anticapitalist coalition that advocates for policy and cultural changes to save black lives.
Mahnker Dahnweih, Bianca Gomez, and Chai Moua will join the leadership team, bringing with them experience in civic engagement strategies, youth organization, and gender justice. With this team, Vaj states that the organization is “in the best position we have ever been to fight for our people and the liberated world we all deserve.”
