Episode 282: Ilyse Hogue (Vote Her In, Episode 16)
On the 16th episode of the Vote Her In series, Kelly Pollock and Rebecca Sive interview Ilyse Hogue, President of NARAL Pro-Choice America. They discuss attacks on reproductive freedom and what listeners can do to stay informed and fight back; Ilyse's activism journey and path to NARAL; and the 50th anniversary of NARAL.
Ilyse Hogue has been president of NARAL Pro-Choice America since 2013 and previously worked at advocacy organizations including MoveOn.org and Media Matters. During her tenure at NARAL, Ilyse has pushed the national conversation around abortion access to be one of fundamental human rights and self-determination for women. She has run successful campaigns defending abortion access on the national and state level, and supporting winning candidates for Congress who made reproductive freedom central to their agenda.
