Sandy Rios, CWA split over ‘irreconcilable differences’

WASHINGTON (BP)–Sandy Rios is no longer president of the Washington D.C.-based Concerned Women for America.

The pro-family organization posted a statement on its website March 12 that CWA and Rios “parted amicably over irreconcilable differences” concerning the “administration” of the organization. The statement added that the organization’s stands “on issues of importance” will not change.

“We are sad to have lost a valued leader today,” Beverly LaHaye, CWA’s founder and chairman of the board of directors, said in a statement. “I wish Sandy well as she pursues her next step, knowing that God will surely use her many gifts, especially of communicating timeless values.

“CWA, too, remains committed to those timeless values as an active voice for truth in the public square. CWA will continue to be that voice in the battles over life and liberty that challenge us today, especially on the critical issues of marriage.”

CWA’s board of trustees is looking for a successor.

Rios told The Washington Post she was dismissed, although she said she did not want to discuss the reasons.
