DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The director of the Iowa chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union hired just last year has abruptly resigned.
The Des Moines Register reports that Jeremy Rosen announced his resignation late Monday, calling it “difficult news.”
Rosen’s last day is Thursday. He was hired in January 2015 to replace Ben Stone, who had served as ACLU of Iowa’s director for 18 years until July 2014.
Before his stint as ACLU of Iowa’s director, Rosen worked as the advocacy director of the National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty in Washington, D.C.
Rosen gave no reason for his departure. A spokeswoman for ACLU of Iowa says the group’s executive committee had accepted Rosen’s resignation. She said she was unable to discuss details behind his resignation.
