October 2012)

Ms. Nancy Keenan

Term:

Since December 2004

Profile:

Our president is Nancy Keenan. She is a nationally recognized progressive leader. You may have seen her on TV or read her quotes in news stories since she joined us in December 2004. Nancy always says that the three PsÑthe power of people, political acumen, and policy expertiseÑare critical to protecting a woman's right to choose for generations to come. Under Nancy's leadership, RAL Pro-Choice America produced enormous pro-choice gains in Congress and helped elect pro-choice President Barack Obama. She also worked with affiliates in four states to defeat seven anti-choice ballot measures, including two successive attempts to ban abortion in South Dakota. After the 2008 elections, National Journal ranked us second among the nation's top 21 political organizations for our impressive win rate among endorsed congressional candidates in hotly contested races. Nancy's work to reshape the debate on reproductive rights and protect women's access to safe, legal abortion has gained significant attention. In 2006, she made Washingtonian Magazine's list of the top 100 most powerful women in Washington, D.C. and the Detroit News described her as both "forthright and politically savvy." The American Prospect described the group's new pro-choice message as "a cunning strategy" that allows "pro-choice advocates to define the terms of the debate."

Program Description:

At the national and state levels, NARAL Pro-Choice America Foundation works to defend and protect reproductive rights through education and policy initiatives. Our signature programs include: Defending Choice Through our Defending Choice programs we combat threats in the courts, congress and in state legislatures across the country. We work to defeat anti-choice measures by educating lawmakers, the public, and our activists about the very real health implications of reproductive choice restrictions. We also mobilize our base (1) online and via traditional grassroots organizing (2) to help stem the tide of dangerous restrictions on abortion, birth control, and sex education. Proactive Prevention First We support a variety of legislative and other policy measures at the state and federal levels, designed to prevent unintended pregnancies and therefore reduce the need for abortion. Through our Prevention First initiative we work to advance commonsense measures including comprehensive sex education, reducing teen pregnancy, guaranteeing access to birth control and emergency contraception and supporting family planning services. Constituency Development We are working to develop and sustain an active and educated pro-choice constituency across the country. We combine standard forms of outreach and grassroots organizing with innovative online advocacy strategies that have recruited over one million Choice Action Network activists who use our online technologies to speak out in defense of choice and work to advance a proactive pro-choice agenda. Affiliate Development We work to expand reproductive rights through intensified work at the state and local level. Through a range of programs and services, we support our state affiliate network across the country with resources, trainings and opportunities for state-to-state collaboration.

Program Long-Term Success:

Annually, we produce "Who Decides? The Status of Women's Reproductive Health in the United States." Since 1991, NARAL Pro-Choice America Foundation has produced the pro-choice movement's most comprehensive report on the legal status of a woman's right to choose in the United States. Who Decides? provides summaries of state and federal laws related to abortion and birth control, tracks choice-related litigation and legislation nationwide, and provides analysis of legislative trends and key statutory enactments. The online version of "Who Decides?" includes all the material included in the annual print version, plus the State Bill Tracker (which summarizes key bills in each state and is updated daily), and complete statute and case summaries that are updated as new laws are enacted and cases are decided.

Be More Transparent
To the extent that NARAL is a significant part of the political arm of our movement, it would be great to figure out ways for others in the movement to hear about how they decide to take on certain issues and not others and see them collaborate more with other organizations in the field. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Increase Visibility
This organization could improve by becoming more visible in southwestern states like New Mexico. Nonprofit Senior Staff
