It is with a mix of sadness and gratitude that the Board of Directors announces Rachel Corey’s departure as Executive Director of the Criminal Justice Policy Coalition, effective October 28, 2016. Since early 2014, Rachel has played a critical role in the development and success of the organization, and while we will miss her, we wish her the best of luck in her new endeavor as the research assistant for the Executive Session of the Harvard Kennedy School’s Program in Criminal Justice Policy and Management.
We want to thank her for her dedicated service which involved many significant accomplishments, including:
Over the next month, we will be conducting a search to find an Interim Executive Director. During this transition period, it is our priority to maintain a stable and effective organization.
Again, we want to thank Rachel for her dedication, passion, enthusiasm and motivation at the Criminal Justice Policy Coalition. She will be greatly missed. We look forward to following the success of her career and are hopeful and excited for the next chapter of the Criminal Justice Policy Coalition as we continue to work for meaningful criminal justice reform in Massachusetts. During this transition, you can still communicate with CJPC through firstname.lastname@example.org.
Eric Tennen, Chair, Board of Directors, Criminal Justice Policy Coalition
I recently submitted my resignation to the board in order to pursue new opportunities. While I have a mix of emotions as I move into this next chapter of my career, as the research assistant at the Executive Session of the Harvard Kennedy School’s Program in Criminal Justice Policy and Management, I will continue to further the work that is so important to me: ending the prison industrial complex. The decision for my transition did not come easily as I am extremely proud of all that the Criminal Justice Policy Coalition has accomplished and hold dear to my heart the relationships I’ve built during my time as Executive Director.
You all welcomed me with open arms when I stepped into this role. I have learned so much from all of you. I want to give my deepest gratitude to all who have been so supportive of the organization and of me personally over the years. Without you, the organization would not be as strong and vibrant as it is. I am so honored to have been the leader of this incredible organization and will watch with much excitement and anticipation as it makes strides in bringing justice to Massachusetts.
If you would like to get in touch with me, the best way moving forward will be: email@example.com.
