Big News about Leadership from CODEPINK | United For Peace and Justice

After 18 years of nonstop engagement of this wonderful organization, Jodie Evans and (Gandhi Peace Award winner) Medea Benjamin are stepping back from our role as co-directors so that three younger, brilliant and capable women can step forward.

The new co-directors will be:

Farida Alam, our multi-talented web manager (don’t forget to check out our brand new website!), art designer and logistical miracle-maker, who has been with CODEPINK for 15 years, will now also be taking on human resources and organizational planning;

Ariel Gold, who came to us 5 years ago as U.S. Middle East foreign policy expert, became co-director in 2018 and will continue in that role;

Carley Towne, a dynamo organizer and activist, will lead our Divest from War and Defund the Pentagon programs, as well as team management and community outreach.
