Laura Jiménez has worked with women of color organizations across the country on issues of reproductive justice, including the National Latina Health Organization (Oakland), the Dominican Women’s Development Center (New York) and SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective (Atlanta). Laura is passionate about issues of immigration, environmental justice, and birthing and parenting, as they intersect with reproductive justice. She is proud to be a California native, but holds dear the time she spent in New York and the South learning about traditions of resistance from powerful women nationwide. She holds degrees in Ethnic Studies from both UC San Diego and San Francisco State University. Laura is a proud mother to four awesome people and is the compañera of a gifted musician. She loves to support pregnant and birthing mamas, loves adventures in food (especially if the food goes well with avocado) and aspires to someday crochet an entire blanket all by herself.
