Greg Morris Becomes New Executive Director of ACLU of Idaho


A familiar name will be taking the reins of the ACLU of Idaho. Greg Morris, who founded a pilot program to assist the homeless for the city of Boise in 2006 and ultimately became executive director of CATCH Inc., has announced that he'll be taking over the top job at ACLU of Idaho.

"With social justice at the forefront of my passion, and with the state tackling some large Constitutional issues, I look forward to fighting for our civil liberties alongside you," Morris wrote to in a letter introducing himself to ACLU supporters. "My career has been spent fighting for one of our most vulnerable populations, those experiencing homelessness. I accepted the position with the ACLU knowing that I will continue to fight for them but looking forward to using my expertise in overcoming other injustices."

Earlier this year, former ACLU of Idaho Executive Director Monica Hopkins transferred to Washington, D.C., to act as the organization's regional executive director in the capital city. Hopkins held that position at ACLU of Idaho beginning in 2008.
