Sarah Goth has joined the ACLU as the office manager for the North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming chapter.

As office manager, Goth is responsible for ensuring the chapter’s physical offices are running smoothly and efficiently while also managing the needs of remote staff across the three states. From managing the collection of administrative data and reports to collaborating on updating and maintaining chapter policies, Goth plays a critical role in the operations of the office and the chapter’s overall work.

“The work of the ACLU – in the legislature, in the courts and in communities across our three states – can’t be done without a strong team of support,” said Libby Skarin, acting executive director for the ACLU of North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming. “Sarah’s top-notch organizational skills combined with her background in project management made her a natural fit for office manager and we’re thrilled to have her on board.” 

Prior to joining the ACLU, Goth was the project coordinator for the Washington Pavilion in Sioux Falls, S.D. There she helped establish and maintain clear communications among the staff, board of directors, sponsors, vendors, and customers to ensure that the guests of the Washington Pavilion and SculptureWalk have an impactful cultural experience. She developed and executed contracts, presentations, and exhibits, and maintained a well-organized office both digitally and physically.

About the ACLU of North Dakota

The American Civil Liberties Union of North Dakota is a non-partisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of civil liberties and civil rights. The ACLU of North Dakota is part of a three-state chapter that also includes South Dakota and Wyoming. The team in North Dakota is supported by staff in those states.

The ACLU believes freedoms of press, speech, assembly and religion, and the rights to due process, equal protection and privacy, are fundamental to a free people.  In addition, the ACLU seeks to advance constitutional protections for groups traditionally denied their rights, including people of color, women and LGBTQ+ and Two Spirit communities. The ACLU of North Dakota carries out its work through selective litigation, lobbying at the state and local level, and through public education and awareness of what the Bill of Rights means for the people of North Dakota.
