After a diligent search process led by our board of directors and shepherded by the SAH executive search agency — in consultation with staff, campaign members, and leaders — I am excited to share with you that this month, our board has announced that DeAnna Hoskins will take the helm of JustLeadershipUSA (JLUSA) as president starting on July 15, 2018. DeAnna’s selection is particularly meaningful because she is a 2016 Leading with Conviction alumna.
DeAnna is a powerhouse and a force for change. We are thrilled to have her on board!
DeAnna is a longtime advocate and visionary leader for eliminating our nation’s reliance on incarceration, reinvesting resources into communities, supporting the successful reentry of people returning home from incarceration, and advancing the rights and leadership of incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people. She has worked at the local, state, and national level. Learn more about her work here.
Please join us in welcoming DeAnna! – We encourage you to send a note of congratulations and support on social media. We are grateful for your incredible support, and look forward to toward #halfby2030 under DeAnna’s leadership.

Interim CEO & Vice President
