Welcome to the team, Cody!

With him on board, our capacity to create change in North Dakota is bigger than ever.

Exciting news!

Cody J. Schuler has joined our team to lead strategic advocacy work across the state of North Dakota.

As advocacy manager, Cody will oversee our team’s legislative, public education and advocacy efforts and is responsible for developing issue campaigns to advance civil liberties and civil rights in North Dakota. As we continue to intensify our efforts to defend civil liberties across the state, Cody’s experience and leadership will be invaluable to advancing a policy agenda.

Prior to joining our team, Cody served as executive director of the FM Coalition to End Homelessness, an advocacy, education, and collaboration nonprofit with a mission to prevent and end homelessness in the Fargo metro area.

Outside of the ACLU, he serves as a commissioner for the Fargo Housing and Redevelopment Authority and volunteers on the boards of directors for the Fargo Downtown Neighborhood Association and The Human Family, a nonprofit with a mission to change communities through art, including the North Dakota Human Rights Art and Film Festivals and the Fargo-Moorhead LGBT Film Festival.

Now more than ever, the ACLU’s unrelenting commitment to protecting the constitutional rights of all people is vital to the future of our democracy and the well-being of our most vulnerable communities.

It’s a privilege to have Cody on our team to lead us at such a pivotal moment in time.
