Welcome to our new President Andrea Miller!
Since early 2008, Andrea has been Executive Director at NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts, where she created a new Reproductive Health Equity and Access framework to focus the organization's research and policy initiatives on improving access to care, especially for vulnerable populations; positioned the organization as a leading voice for protecting and promoting reproductive health services in health reform – including securing no-copays for contraception in the state's reform initiatives in advance of federal standards; and helped to retain a fully pro-choice state government in the volatile 2010 election cycle.
Before relocating to Boston in 2006 to attend Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, Andrea was a principal and co-owner at Public Interest Media Group (PIMG), a national communications and public affairs firm based in New York City. While there, she was a key player in devising and implementing the successful strategy to gain over-the-counter access to Plan B, the emergency contraceptive pill. She also helped to conceive and launch national campaigns to counter the troubling trend of politics trumping science in the Bush Administration and to educate women about emergency contraception (Back Up Your Birth Control).
During her eight-year tenure at PIMG, Andrea secured and supervised accounts for Advocates for Youth, the Guttmacher Institute, Ms. Foundation for Women, NARAL Pro-Choice America, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Reproductive Health Technologies Project, United Nations Development Fund for Women, and the White House Project, among others. In 2000, the Kaiser Family Foundation asked her to also create and direct their Media Resource for Reproductive and Sexual Health, a three-year initiative to inform, encourage, and improve press coverage of these topics.
Prior to joining PIMG, Miller helped to found the Center for Reproductive Rights and served as communications director for its first five years, where she crafted and implemented public affairs strategies around high-profile Supreme Court cases such as Planned Parenthood v. Casey as well as federal and state policies affecting women's health and rights. She started her professional career at the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project. Miller has a Master of Public Administration from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and a Bachelor of Arts in political science from Columbia College, Columbia University. She is a native of Minnesota.
