Hickey Departs D.A.

Transition at Different Avenues

Darby Hickey, who has been serving as interim executive director of Different Avenues, a local advocacy organization serving youth and young adults affected by HIV and violence, particularly homeless GLBT youth engaged in sex work as a means of survival, stepped down Aug. 29 to pursue work with Stop Prisoner Rape.

Stop Prisoner Rape is based in Los Angeles, though Hickey will serve as a policy associate out of the organization’s D.C. office.

”I will still be involved [with Different Avenues], particularly around our Move Along [Policing Sex Work in Washington, D.C.] report,” says Hickey, who has worked at Different Avenues for five years.

The transition also marks the incoming of a permanent executive director, Kelli Dorsey.

”[Dorsey] has a lot of connections to different aspects of the harm-reduction movement in D.C., … so we’re hoping to see her bring some new folks into the fold,” says Hickey, whose last days at Different Avenues were spent working with Dorsey.
