The president of Independence Public Media Foundation, Molly de Aguiar, tweeted her welcome to two new members of her staff Jan. 31:


Aigbomian, the new communications and events manager, comes to IPMF from Read by 4th, where she was the communications manager. Before that she worked in various communications capacities at at CEDESOCIAL, an NGO in Baranquilla, Colombia, and at Resident Voices Media and American Friends Service Committee, in Philadelphia. She’s also worked at Women’s Campaign International and HOPE Worldwide, both in Philadelphia, and at the Institute for International Economic Policy of George Washington University in Washington, D.C.

According to IPMF’s website, Aigbomian “uses storytelling and visual media to advocate for disenfranchised communities in the U.S. and abroad. Her work focuses on the African diaspora and Indigenous communities in the Americas, as well as the socio-economic rights of women and children.”

The Public Interest Law Center announced in its late January newsletter that it has appointed two new members to its board of directors:

  • Scott Charles, trauma outreach coordinator at Temple University Hospital
  • Bret Flaherty, assistant general counsel for AmerisourceBergen

4. Two Temple Law students join Philadelphia Lawyers for Social Equity for the spring term.

“The only possible way PLSE can file 3,000 expungement petitions per year with just two staff attorneys is by relying on law students for help,” starts Philadelphia Lawyers for Social Equity‘s late January newsletter  announcing that Elizabeth O’Connell and Araesia King will be the organization’s law interns through the spring.

O’Connell is a third-year student at Temple University’s Beasley School of Law, and has professional experience as a legal assistant for Obermayer Rebmann Maxwell & Hippel LLP, and an internship with the Governor’s Office of General Counsel under her belt.

King is in her second year at Temple Law and has interned in the Civil Rights Division in the Department of Justice in Washington and with the Education Law Center in Philadelphia.
