Amy Robertson and Tim Fox, Co-founders of CREEC, sent the following letter to the CREEC community on October 14, 2020
Dear CREEC Friends –
We are very excited to tell you that CREEC will soon be hiring our replacement! CREEC has started the search for a new executive director, who will take over the position that we have co-held since we founded CREEC in 2013.
Here is a link to the job posting: https://creeclaw.org/creec-is-hiring-an-executive-director/
We started CREEC to continue litigating impact civil rights cases, and to expand the educational work we did not have the bandwidth for as a private law firm. Since then, CREEC has grown significantly, adding the Immigration Detention Accountability Project and formalizing our disability rights work into the Accessibility Project. We are confident in and enthusiastic about CREEC’s strength as an organization, and believe that this is the right time – for the organization and for the two of us personally – to hire a new executive director to lead CREEC forward.
This transition permits us to do what we love the most: litigate civil rights cases and educate about civil rights and CREEC’s work. After the new ED is in place, Tim will be CREEC’s Litigation Director, while Amy will take on the august title of Senior Counsel.
We appreciate your interest in and support for CREEC.
Tim and Amy
