For the past 6 years, Moji has used her team building expertise to help organize and grow Abortion Access Front’s fight against the patriarchy and abortion extremism. She is currently boot-on-the-ground at AAF; speaking at rallies, podcast hosting, counter-protesting, volunteering at clinics and out on the road with the team raising hell. Moji loves yoga, reading sci-fi by femme people & people of color, roller skates and talking really loudly about her own abortion and reproductive rights in public spaces. Moji is a graduate of Sarah Lawrence College and is currently having too much fun raising an adorable-assed feminist in Harlem. Moji’s on the ground experience working closely with clinics, and her wealth of knowledge on legislative trends brings to the Feminist Buzzkills Live podcast the much needed perspective of just how relentless these legislative attacks are and how they emotionally and practically affect clinics and their ability to provide care.
Marie has been with AAF since spring of 2019. As the operations manager she tries to helpfully interfere with all projects, and particularly enjoys participating in fundraisers and events benefiting the invaluable independent abortion clinics all over the United States. Marie has a masters in Criminology and worked in public higher education in Chicago for over a decade as an academic counselor and fellowship and scholarship advisor. She has been the the Director of Operations for Midwest Access Coalition since late 2016, a practical support abortion organization that assists folks with transportation, lodging, childcare, and other costs that create major barriers for those seeking safe abortion care.
