Paula Hodges
RI Director of Public Policy & Advocacy
Planned Parenthood Votes! Rhode Island

Paula Hodges recently relocated to Rhode Island to serve as the state's Public Policy & Advocacy Director for Planned Parenthood of Southern New England. Hodges last worked as Political Director for Missouri National Education Association (MNEA), the state's largest public employee union and prior to that coordinated progressive labor, environmental and women’s groups’ electoral plans at the America Votes - Missouri table. Paula previously served as deputy director of policy for Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan. She graduated from Truman State University with an interdisciplinary degree in Cultural & Political Advocacy and became interested in politics while serving as a Congressional Page for former Congressman Ike Skelton (MO-4). Having just moved from the Midwest, Paula is astutely aware of the polarizing political environment we must cut through in order to seek progress around reproductive justice issues. Many voices make light work.
