Political strategist Ilyse Hogue has been chosen to succeed Nancy Keenan as president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, the organization announced Monday.

“I am absolutely thrilled to be given the honor of leading this great organization,” Hogue said in a statement. “This is a critical moment to engage a new generation of young people in the conversation about what choice means in a modern age. We have a unique opportunity to ignite the pro-choice values most Americans share, solidify our longstanding pro-choice base, and expand its reach moving forward.”

Hogue has previously served as the co-founder and co-director of Friends of Democracy Super PAC, a senior adviser to Media Matters for America, and a director for MoveOn.org.

Keenan announced last year that she planned to resign as president of NARAL to make way for “a new and younger leader.”
