All of us at Antiwar.com are pleased to announce the appointment of Angela Keaton as our new Executive Director. Keaton has been with Antiwar.com since 2008 and is now expanding her portfolio from her previous positions of Development Director and Director of Operations to focus on our long term vision of ending militarism, war and torture. Keaton, who has collaborated with our opinions editor Scott Horton in news and public affairs broadcasting since 1999, was station manager of the controversial KOOP 91.7 FM in Austin Texas. She also served on the Libertarian National Committee where she spearheaded action to retain the traditional libertarian stance against war.
Keaton, a second generation libertarian, has an MA and JD from the University of Florida. In addition to her extensive duties at Antiwar.com, she is a legal researcher at a West Hollywood based law firm, worked as a script doctor on audio books and ghost written materials on such eclectic areas from voting rights to celebrity gossip. She plans to use her diverse background to continue building non-partisan alliances against state sponsored mass murder. A summary of her world view on can be found at The Daily Bell.
We’d also like to take this opportunity to thank former executive director Alexia Gilmore who is our comptroller and overseer of the Randolph Bourne Institute, the parent organization of Antiwar.com.
