The American Civil Liberties Union of Arkansas announced that Megan Bailey has joined the organization as its first communications director. Bailey most recently led communications for the Arkansas Public Policy Panel, working with local and national partners and constituencies across various governmental, civic, and community organizations on collaborative issue campaigns. Before joining the Arkansas Public Policy Panel she worked as an editor and news reporter for publications throughout the state. 

“We are excited to have Megan join our team as the first, in-house communications director for our affiliate,” said Holly Dickson, executive director of the ACLU of Arkansas. “This is a critically important time for our organization and state and Megan’s strong communications skills and network throughout the state will help advance our strategic priorities in 2023 and beyond.”

“I’m thrilled to be joining the growing team at the ACLU of Arkansas,” said Bailey. “I look forward to growing the affiliates communications strategies and elevating initiatives that will continue to advance the civil rights and civil liberties of everyone in our state.”
