Monica Edwards

If/When/How Reproductive Justice Policy Fellow

Monica is a southern belle and unapologetic black feminist from Marion, Alabama. She attended The University of Alabama where she received her B.A. in Criminal Justice with minors in both Sociology and Women Studies. In May 2018, she graduated from The University of Alabama School of Law. During law school she interned with her hometown’s district attorney’s office and was selected to work as summer student legal counsel at Harvard Legal Aid Bureau, one of many legal clinics at Harvard Law School. Also during law school, she worked in Alabama Law’s Domestic Violence Clinic under the late Elizabeth A. Whipple, participated in La Raza Law Student Association, Black Law Student’s Association, and OutLaw Queer-Straight Alliance. Two of her biggest law school influencers were her former professors and legal scholars Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic. When Monica isn’t pushing back against misogyny and injustice, she is watching Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder for the billionth time, and blasting Drake in her apartment. Roll Tide!
