Adam Jorgensen joined the ACLU as the communications associate in December of 2017, and became the Digital Media Associate in April of 2020. In this role, Adam works collaboratively with the communications director and advocacy teams to produce strategic digital content for South Dakota, North Dakota, and Wyoming audiences.
Pre-ACLU, Adam served at Sioux Falls Pride as the president, worked as the communications and development coordinator at NARAL Pro-Choice South Dakota, helped folks at LifeScape secure employment, and lead a team of 250 volunteers at Sanford Hospice. Throughout the last several years, Adam has immersed himself in the local non-profit advocacy world with the goal of unifying different groups.
Adam is a graduate of the University of Sioux Falls and Southeast Technical Institute with majors focusing on marketing, project management and graphic design.
A self-described “doting pet parent and doer of things," Adam is beholden to his dog Nina and is an active member of the Sioux Falls community volunteering with organizations like the Bishop Dudley House and the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
One of Adam's favorite moments in history is in June 2015. The moment America was at its best. On one morning in Pride month no less, the Supreme Court, at 10:07 a.m., ruled that same-sex couples had a constitutional right to marry. Adam celebrated this day with friends, family and loved ones – not to mention rainbow cake, flags, and tears of pure joy.
