Leadership Transition at WJCNY

Dear WJCNY Community,

It’s been an incredible two years, and I have been privileged to be a part of the transformative work that WJCNY does for our NY Community. I am writing to let you know that I have made the difficult decision to move on from the organization, to lead a national organization in working in health equity and advocacy. I am excited about the path ahead, but I also want to thank the amazing team at WJCNY who have worked so hard in the last two years to build the future of the organization with me.

We’re pleased to announce that Diana Saguilán and Andrea Callan, Esq. have accepted the positions of Interim Co-Directors. WJCNY will be in their capable hands while our Board of Directors organizes a search process for our next Executive Director. They have a combined 21 years at WJCNY and oversee the organization’s financial and administrative functions. I am confident in their leadership and collaborative spirit.

I know WJCNY will continue to build a more just future for the workers and families who are the foundation of our society, and while I am leaving the organization, I will continue to be a partner in the work toward equity for all New Yorkers. It’s been an honor to work in community with you - Please stay in touch!

In Solidarity,

Lauren Deutsch, Esq

Executive Director
