LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- The ACLU of Nebraska has named a state senator from Lincoln as its executive director.

Sen. Danielle Conrad will join the group in November. She is leaving the Legislature in January due to term limits.

Conrad worked as a policy counsel for the group Nebraska Appleseed before serving as a lawmaker. She also served as executive director of the Lincoln Parks Foundation, and led this year's campaign to place a proposed minimum wage increase on the November ballot.

In the Legislature, Conrad served on the budget-writing Appropriations Committee and worked on legislation related to workplace fairness, reproductive freedom and immigration.

ACLU President Leslie Seymore says Conrad has been as a strong advocate for basic civil rights and liberties.

Conrad earned her law degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
