In many ways, coming back to reproductive justice is a homecoming, as I have been an advocate, equity, and policy champion for over 15 years. In that time, I have worked with each of the previous NARAL Executive Directors and will continue their commitment to winning policy that guarantees our rights to reproductive freedom. As you know, it is people who are the engine of our movement. Our amazing team has a shared dedication to the mission and vision, and each brings a deep passion for our work. From our staff team to our members to our donors – it is our collective action that galvanizes wins for our communities. I am honored to have the next six months to work with our team and board – and most importantly you – to defend and expand abortion and reproductive rights in Washington.
