MILWAUKEE — The ACLU of Wisconsin has hired Alyssa Mauk as Communications Director. Alyssa will be responsible for media and public relations, social media and website management, and communications strategy throughout the state for the ACLU of Wisconsin.  

“I have seen the discrimination that many people face due to their race, disability, sexual orientation or gender identity,” Mauk said. “ I am proud to work for the ACLU of Wisconsin, which fights for the people who deserve equal rights and treatment, but struggle to receive them."

Before coming to the ACLU of Wisconsin, Mauk worked as the crime and courts reporter for The Journal Times newspaper in Racine, where she won Wisconsin Newspaper Association awards for her work. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in English and Theatre Arts in 2012 from the University of Wisconsin-Parkside in Kenosha.
