Founder & Executive Director, We Testify
Hailed as the ‘Beyoncé of abortion storytelling,’ for over a decade, Renee Bracey Sherman brings creativity, panache, and oh-so-much fierce heart to the conversation on abortion access. The term “abortionsplaining”? She coined it. The phrase “Everyone loves someone who’s had an abortion”? She made it popular. The #AskAboutAbortion campaign? She created it and made presidential candidates talk about abortion access.
Whether through We Testify, the organization she founded and runs, the documentary she produced Ours to Tell, or her forthcoming book, Countering Abortionsplaining, Renee makes sure that folks like her who have had abortions are the ones talking about and leading on abortion. Keeping the voices of people of color who have abortions at the center, Renee is a force. Her undeniable way with words turns up the volume on these critical abortion conversations whether she’s on a conference stage, in a college auditorium, or testifying before of Congress.
Everyone loves someone who had abortions.
