Allie Lahey is an unapologetic agitator, troublemaker, social media and political nerd, and grassroots organizer at heart. Since 2017 at NARAL Pro-Choice California, she has been engaging over 200,000 members in electoral and legislative campaigns. Past campaigns have included canvassing over 300 small business for the Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Act, leading the field programs to flip anti-choice Congressional, State Senate and Assembly Districts in California, mobilizing thousands to Stop Kavanaugh, and leading the charge for the fight to save the Reproductive FACT Act in the Supreme Court.
As the Senior Organizing Manager, she spearheads the organizing program in California by supporting volunteer, member-led Action Councils, mentoring organizers and strategizing to flex the people power of NARAL for campaign victories.
Before joining NARAL, she was the Ohio State Organizer with URGE: Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity, where she kickstarted their first integrated voter engagement program, registering hundreds of young people to vote, training and mobilizing thousands of young Ohioans for reproductive justice issues, such as overturning the Hyde Amendment and stopping abortion bans.
She started as a feminist campus organizer at Bowling Green State University, where she graduated in 2014 studying Human Development and Family Studies, Popular Culture and Sexuality Studies. During college, she worked as support staff at a domestic violence shelter and at a STEM camp for girls.
When she’s not fighting for reproductive rights, Allie is organizing locally with the East Bay Democratic Socialists of America, where she serves on the Steering Committee and the Social Housing Committee. In her free time, you can find her with her friends at a local Emo Night or hanging out with her cat, Mouse.
