The 2019 Board Nominees are:

Dr. Guillermina Gonzalez
Adjunct Professor, Doctor of Business Administration Program, Wilmington University
Civil liberties are under attack. The ACLU is the most prominent and effective organization defending them in the US. Being part of such a relevant organization is a privilege and offers the opportunity to increase civic engagement. I am honored to be considered for the ACLU-DE Board.

Jennifer Ying
Partner, Morris, Nichols, Arsht & Tunnell LLP
In 2017, I had the privilege of serving as a cooperating attorney on behalf of a physically disabled woman and her mentally disabled husband. That same year, my mother suffered a hemorrhagic stroke that left her permanently disabled and with significant cognitive impairment. These events helped open my eyes to the need to protect the rights of those with disabilities. Serving on the ACLU-DE Board would allow me to do that.

Rachel Blumenfeld
Teacher, Brandywine High School
My driving passion is the promotion of justice, equality, and freedom for all people regardless of background, and becoming a board member of ACLU-DE would allow me to contribute further to the protection of the rights of all Delawareans.
