American Civil Liberties Union of Hawaiʻi’s executive director Joshua Wisch will step down. He has been the head of the advocacy group for four and a half years.

Under Wisch’s leadership, the ACLU of Hawaiʻi doubled the size of its full-time staff. The organization recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of a Campbell High School female student-athlete against the state Department of Education for Title IX violations.

Deputy Executive Director Ryan Leong will serve as interim executive director.

Wisch will next lead a new nonprofit called Holomua Collective. He will leave ACLU in mid-May.
