JDI’s Transition

In 2004, Lovisa Stannow, a human rights activist and journalist, became Executive Director. She would serve in that role for 16 years, the longest tenure of any ED in the organization’s history. She succeeded Lara Stemple, a human rights attorney whose hiring marked JDI’s transition from a volunteer-run network to a professionalized human rights organization.
