Every year the Reproductive Health Access Project has the sincere pleasure of hosting young advocates of reproductive health and justice at our New York City offices. These students are the key to the future of reproductive health and we are very proud to assist them in developing the tools they need for a future in social justice.
Eleanore “Nora” Langknecht is a senior at Eugene Lang College at The New School University. She will graduate this May with a BA in Social Inquiry. In addition to working with RHAP this spring, Nora is writing and researching a senior thesis about the history of comprehensive curricula and the advocacy for sexuality education demonstrated by non-profits and government groups. Fostering a lifelong interest in comprehensive sexuality education, as well as access to proper care and information, she is thrilled to be joining RHAP as a development and fundraising intern.
Hailey Broughton-Jones is a proud Brooklynite and a high school senior at the Institute for Collaborative Education. She is excited to be attending Wesleyan University in the fall. Her passion for reproductive health began in the 10th grade after she and a few fellow classmates created a mock grass-roots organization called Teens for Choice. Hailey’s commitment to reproductive justice is rooted in her deep belief that sex equality cannot be obtained until individuals have complete control over their reproductive health.
In addition, Hailey also co-founded Project Skittles, her high school’s gay straight alliance. Outside of work Hailey is a major foodie, loves Zumba, biking, and spoken word. This semester she looks forward to working with the RHAP team and soaking up as much knowledge as possible before summer!
