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.
