NARAL Pro-Choice Minnesota Names Maggie Meyer as Executive Director
Meyer’s Leadership to Launch New Chapter in Minnesota’s Reproductive Freedom Movement
Minneapolis, MN July 31, 2019. – The NARAL Pro-Choice Minnesota Board of Directors is proud to announce that Maggie Meyer has accepted the position of Executive Director beginning August 1, 2019.
Meyer brings a decade of experience in organizing, fundraising and development to NARAL Pro-Choice Minnesota. Meyer joins the organization after serving as Finance Director for Erin Murphy’s 2018 gubernatorial campaign and Development Director for the Center for Economic Inclusion. As the former Associate Director of Women Winning, Meyer also brings highly valuable experience in pro-choice politics and organizing.
Commenting on the hiring, Kristin Nierengarten, Board Chair, stated, “After an extensive search, we determined that Meyer is the leader who will steer NARAL Pro-Choice Minnesota in the next chapter of the organization’s critical work. As state legislatures around the country are attacking a woman’s right to make personal decisions about her health, Maggie will be a force for the pro-choice movement at the State Capitol and will partner with our members and donors to grow the organization at this pivotal moment in state politics.”
“My vision for the world is one where we rule our own destiny, so I’ve been drawn to the reproductive freedom movement throughout my career,” Meyer said. “An outright abortion ban was introduced in the Minnesota State Senate just this year, meaning the work of NARAL Pro-Choice Minnesota has never been more important. There is a clear pro-choice majority in our state. We must organize and build power within that majority to protect and expand our rights. I am thrilled to lead this organization as we work to advance and protect reproductive freedom in Minnesota.”
Ms. Meyer can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org. She replaces Andrea Ledger who successfully strengthened the organization during her five years as Executive Director.
NARAL Pro-Choice Minnesota uses the political process to guarantee every woman the right to make personal decisions regarding the full range of reproductive choices, including preventing unintended pregnancy, bearing healthy children, and choosing legal abortion. NARAL Pro-Choice Minnesota is a state affiliate of NARAL Pro-Choice America.
