The ACLU was founded shortly after World War One in response to arrests taking place without warrants. The ACLU currently has more than 1.5 million members in a 50-state network of affiliate organizations, and is active in areas of freedom of speech and religion, reproductive choice, due process of law, and citizen’s rights to privacy. The ACLU appears before the United Sates Supreme Court more than any other organization other than the U.S. Dept. of Justice.
The ACLU of Arizona was chartered by the national organization over 50 years ago to defend individual rights in Arizona through litigation, legislation, and public education.
Navidad joined the ACLU AZ as Executive Director in 2006, having previously served as ACLU Communications Director in its Florida affiliate and the ACLU of Louisiana prior to that. She is the first Latina to head the AZ organization.
She has an MBA from the University of Arizona Eller College of Management and a B.S. in Journalism from the University of Florida.
Navidad will appear as part of DORR’s critical issues breakfast series held on the third Thursday of each month. The organization presents different issues at each. All breakfasts are open to the public. There is a $15 fee to cover the cost of breakfast.
