Athar Hassebullah Named Executive Director of ACLU Nevada
For the first time in the organization’s 55-year history, the executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Nevada is a person of color.
Las Vegas attorney Athar Haseebullah, 33, took over last week at the organization’s central valley office, right down the street from his childhood home.
Haseebullah is a practicing Muslim whose parents immigrated to the U.S. from Pakistan; his tenure began seven months after then-Executive Director Tod Story departed. Story announced in June that he planned to “pursue other opportunities” after serving for more than seven years as executive director.
