Gilbert “Gil” Sloan is a chemist by profession who devoted the past several decades to progressive politics in Delaware. It is impossible to know Gil without also honoring his late wife and constant partner, Sonia Sloan. Both Gil and Sonia were founding members and longtime board members of ACLU-DE, and they remained with us through our development over the decades.
Gil considers the complete reform of the Ferris School juvenile detention center in the 1990s, which formerly housed children in deplorable conditions, to be one of our greatest achievements. Gill still maintains a laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania.
