Executive Director

March 2nd, 2023
Executive Director

With the fall of Roe in 2022, Pregnancy Justice is at a critical inflection point, transitioning from its esteemed founding leadership to its next era of work with a new brand, grounded in a vision where the rights of pregnant people are protected. With a passionate and innovative staff, dynamic and supportive board, a $3.3M+ budget, Pregnancy Justice now seeks a new Executive Director who will chart the organization’s next phase, leveraging learnings from its past work to shift and improve national and state policy affecting pregnant people.

The new Executive Director will partner closely with the Deputy Executive Director, staff, and board to build on the organization’s strengths to bolster a movement that defends pregnant people in the face of growing threats that are emboldened by the recent Dobbs decision. The work ahead calls for a leader with a clear vision and passion for reproductive justice and protecting pregnant people’s constitutional and civil rights, a sophisticated racial analysis, dedication to building broad multi-issue coalitions, commitment to building and sustaining anti-oppression and anti-racist organizational culture, and understanding of how we arrived at this historic moment. This next stage also requires that Pregnancy Justice cultivate more partnerships, ensure the most important voices are at the table, including centering the experiences of BIPOC communities, communities at the margins, and wide-ranging geographic perspectives.
