Fatimah Gifford

Communications Director

Fatimah has over 17 years of combined experience in marketing, public relations and communications. She graduated from Hawaii Pacific University in Honolulu with degrees in Bachelors of Science and Business administration with a major in Marketing. She also holds a certificate in Managing Organizational Change from the University of Texas at Austin.

While in college, Fatimah quickly realized that she had a passion for Marketing and Communications and networked to find every opportunity she could get to learn more to gain more knowledge. Throughout her career she focused on brand management and building integrative marketing campaigns for several government entities, until coming to reproductive health and rights in 2013, with Whole Woman’s Health. And that very first day of work, she knew that this is the work that she needed to do. She recognized that there was an extreme disconnect in resources and information for black and brown folks accessing healthcare, and that void fueled her desire to connect with communities to not only learn more about reproductive justice, but also educate folks on why it’s so important to catalyze change. Fatimah coordinated national communications strategies for several Whole Woman’s Health initiatives to include the historic Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt Supreme Court victory, in 2016, where a Texas law designed to restrict abortion access was stricken down.

Fatimah also serves on the Board at IBIS Reproductive Health, a non-profit research organization, that aims to advance sexual and reproductive autonomy, choices and health worldwide.

When she’s not working to fight for equality in our communities, Fatimah is quite often at one of her son’s athletic events, watching reality tv or taking selfies of her black cat, Chanel and puppy, Honey.
