Justice Reform Legislative and Policy Specialist

Rebecca Goldman serves as the Justice Reform Legislative and Policy Specialist with the League of Women Voters. A member of the Advocacy and Litigation department, Rebecca supports LWVUS and League affiliates in developing the League’s national policy agenda before Congress and the Administration, as well as in advancing state and local legislative initiatives on the League’s urgent issue areas. She also supports the League in the development of a national campaign strategy and implementation of its advocacy efforts.

Prior to joining the League, Rebecca served in the non-profit sector addressing sexual and reproductive health and rights, economic inequity, and food insecurity through research, advocacy, public education, and direct service provision. She has crafted written testimony before the Maryland General Assembly and engaged in congressional advocacy, co-authoring a peer-reviewed journal article on the impact of a federal international policy on health systems and outcomes.

In advance of the 2020 presidential election, Rebecca volunteered to assist with voter registration, education, and mobilization. Encountering disinformation and voter suppression, she became interested in the intersection of democracy and justice.

Rebecca earned her Bachelor of Arts in psychology from Cornell University, with minors in Spanish, human development, and English with a concentration in feminist, gender, and sexuality studies. With a passion for human beings, and the conviction that the personal is political, Rebecca is delighted to join the League to help address systemic inequity and advance representation in our democracy.

On August 16, the President signed the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 into law. The law approves more than 700 billion dollars in federal investments aimed at reducing the national deficit, combating climate change, and lowering health care costs.  

Gun violence has a relatively more devastating impact on certain groups of people, including the LGBTQIA+ community. The disproportionate impact of gun violence on the LGBTQIA+ community makes gun safety a vital protection for community members.

The recently leaked US Supreme Court draft opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization threatens to overturn the constitutional protection of abortion. If this decision is published, reproductive rights are predicted to largely become a state legislative issue.
