Turning Points Network (TPN) is pleased to announce that Pascale N. Graham, Ph.D., has been named as the new executive director of the agency beginning January 1, 2023.
Graham begins her new role as executive director as the agency moves into new office space at 231 Broad Street and builds out several new educational and outreach initiatives.
Graham brings to the position extensive experience in advocacy and public policy, an asset when supporting TPN in capacity building and outreach. Holding a master’s in public administration degree from New York University where she was a Public Service Scholar, Graham obtained her doctorate at McGill University in Canada, where she taught at the Institute of Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies. Graham worked in sexual assault prevention as an undergraduate and has maintained her passion for working to end domestic and sexual violence throughout her career, including as a director of public policy on gender-based violence in the New York City Mayor’s office. “
“Turning Points Network is an incredible organization that touches the lives of thousands of Sullivan County residents,” said Pascale Graham. “I am grateful to have this opportunity to work with an amazing group of advocates who tirelessly support victim-survivors in our area. Together we will further TPN’s mission to make our communities free of domestic and sexual violence.”
Graham has served as the assistant director since 2021 and has worked closely on this transition with outgoing executive director Deborah Mozden, who is stepping down following forty years with the agency.
“We are fortunate to have Deb stay on in an advisory role. She has been a visionary leader and has built Turning Points Network into an agency at the forefront of advocacy, offering exceptional programs in domestic and sexual violence prevention and financial empowerment while actively participating in the schools in Sullivan County all with the goal of interrupting the cycle of violence,” noted TPN Board President Hill.
“We look forward to welcoming the community to our new offices for an open house in the spring where they will be able to congratulate Pascale on her new role, meet all the staff, and thank Deb for her many years of service.”
