Tilly Retiring From Ala. Child Advocacy Group
A longtime advocate for Alabama children is retiring.
The board of VOICES for Alabama's Children announced that Linda Tilly will retire as executive director at the end of the year. Tilly has been with the statewide child advocacy organization for more than 17 years.
During Tilly's tenure, she has worked to create the Children First Trust Fund and to provide funding for the All Kids health insurance program. She's also worked on the passage of vehicle safety laws for child passengers and teen drivers. Tilly said it's appropriate for the nonprofit organization to have new leadership with new approaches as it enters its third decade.
The organization is searching for a replacement for Tilly.
