SiX Repro Welcomes Jennifer Driver as Senior Director of Reproductive Rights
SiX is thrilled to welcome Jennifer Driver as the new Senior Director of Reproductive Rights.
Jennifer is an award-winning reproductive health, rights, and justice policy and advocacy leader with nearly 15 years in the field. Her work centers on addressing systems that add burdens or barriers to accessing full reproductive health information and services— paying particular attention to communities of color, immigrants, system involved youth, and LGBTQ communities.
Prior to joining SiX, Jennifer served as the Vice President of Policy and Strategic Partnerships with SIECUS (the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States), where she provided leadership to drive the organization’s federal and state policy and advocacy efforts.
Prior to joining the team at SIECUS, Jennifer worked 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 and the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power and Potential. She is the Founder of Take Root Strategies LLC, a consulting firm providing strategic guidance on reproductive health care policy. Jennifer serves on the board of the Alexandria Campaign on Adolescent Pregnancy Leadership Council.
“I am beyond excited to be a part of an organization committed to advancing progressive policies,” said Jennifer. “I’m most passionate about advancing reproductive health, rights, and justice and make no apologies for centering Black and Brown communities in this work. Having grown up in Alabama, I know the impacts of state policy and what happens when you have been systemically disenfranchised. I am honored to work with state legislators across the country to ensure that regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, income, or ability, we all have full access to reproductive health care.”
A dynamic trainer, presenter, and spokesperson on reproductive health, rights, and justice, Jennifer has been featured and quoted in national media, including The Washington Post, Vogue, The New York Times, Rewire, The Hill, CNN, The Harvard Political Review, MSNBC, and Politico. She was also recognized in 2019 as one of 50 impactful creators, artists, and activists by B*TCH Media.
“Jennifer’s experience in championing comprehensive reproductive health care access for all coupled with her deep understanding of how connected reproductive freedom is to racial justice is evident,” said SiX Senior Vice President of Strategic Initiatives Kelly Baden. “I couldn’t be more excited to have Jennifer lead the reproductive rights team at this vital point in our organization.”
