Rebecca Fox is the Director of the National Coalition for LGBT Health, leading organizations nationwide to work together to improve the lives and health of LGBT people through advocacy, outreach, and education.

She also teaches human sexuality at the George Washington University. She serves on the boards of Choice USA, a national organization that mobilizes and supports the diverse, upcoming generation of leaders who promote and protect reproductive choice, and the Washington Area Clinic Defense Task Force (WACDTF), a local organization working to ensure access for all women to reproductive health services.

Prior to coming to the Coalition, Fox worked as the Assistant Director for Public Policy at SIECUS, the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States. In this position, she assisted the work of state level groups and coalitions working to ensure comprehensive sexuality education and working to stem the tide of abstinence-only-until-marriage programs.

Before SIECUS, she worked at the National Partnership for Women and Families, where she monitored federal level legislation pertaining to health insurance, gender-based discrimination, and reproductive rights. Her experience includes assisting in a free medical clinic for women and providing services and programming for people living with HIV/AIDS, homeless youth, and children of LGBTQ parents.

LGBT People Accessing Reproductive Justice

What is reproductive health for LGBT people? The answer is as diverse as our community and as varied as it is for heterosexual people. For all people it is the right to choose how we want to live our lives that is constantly in peril and must be relentlessly protected.
