Vice President of Policy & Strategic Partnerships
As the Vice President of Policy and Strategic Partnerships, Jennifer provides leadership to drive the organization’s federal and state policy and advocacy efforts and to build cross-movement and intersectional strategic partnerships and collaborations that advance sexual and reproductive freedom for all at the intersection of queer liberation, racial justice, and reproductive justice. Jennifer also manages the Sex Education Policy Action Council (SEPAC) – a newly launched network of state and local changemakers who are building a movement to advance comprehensive sex education in communities across the country.
Prior to joining the team at SIECUS, Jennifer served as the Manager of Training & Education for Welcoming America where her work focused on the intersection of immigration, racism, education, health, and policy.
Her previous experience also includes working for Power to Decide (Formerly the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy) and the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power and Potential.
Utilizing public health and intersectional frameworks, Jennifer focuses much of her work on advocating for the health and well-being of young people — paying particular attention to youth of color, immigrants, youth in care, and LGBTQ communities— as she shapes and advances public policy efforts at SIECUS.
