FLY Family, last November, we announced that a historic transition for FLY would take place on July 1. On this date CEO Christa Gannon will move to a full-time Founder role after serving as the executive leader since she started the organization in 2000. Ali Knight, FLY’s COO of five years, will take the helm as FLY’s new President and CEO.
Thank you for standing with us during this critical time in our country’s history and at such an important intersection of FLY’s past, present, and future. We hope you’ll join our virtual ceremony on June 30 from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. as we invite these two amazing leaders into their new roles at FLY.
We look forward to honoring Christa, Ali, and you. Together we will celebrate the work we have done to make this powerful moment for FLY possible and to launch into our future during a time when the pursuit of justice is more important than ever.
Chair, FLY’s Board of Directors
