New Ulm man heads CADA

MANKATO — The Committee Against Domestic Abuse (CADA) Board of Directors has selected Jason Mack as its Executive Director.

Mack, who has been employed at CADA since June 2015, has served in a variety of capacities; most significantly and recently, as a community liaison with the Domestic Abuse Information Network (DAIN), Southern Minnesota Offender Education Program (SMOEP) coordinator/facilitator, and Blue Print for Safety coordinator.

Originally from New Ulm, Mack is an alumnus of Minnesota State University, Mankato, with BS and MA degrees in social sciences. Married with one child, Mack and his wife reside in Mankato. As a family, they are committed to living in a violence-free world and they are dedicated to the vision that through advocacy, education and shelter a violence free community can become a reality.

“It is a profound honor to serve as the Executive Director of CADA,” said Mack. “It is a position I cannot undertake without paying homage to the many remarkable women who have led this organization and movement from the inception. I say this because I believe in violence free communities, which we know can only happen when people live in violence-free homes.”
