Mona Chun is stepping down as Executive Director of the Human Rights Funders Network and will transition out of the role in June 2019. While we are saddened by her departure, we are proud of the contributions Mona has made to establish a vibrant global network that supports our work in myriad ways and will continue to flourish for the future of human rights.
