URGE: Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity

Andrew Jenkins is a devout feminist and queer social justice activist hailing from the west coast. He started his activism as a student organizer on campus, where he mobilized young people to fight for sexual and reproductive justice. In 2011, Andrew organized the first convening of LGBT military personnel – post repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell – as the Conference Director for OutServe. He also served as the Fundraising Committee Chair on the Young People For Alumni Board of Directors, engaging and training the next generation of progressive leaders. Soon after, Andrew joined the Choice USA team, where he brought his unwavering passion for youth leadership development and feminist praxis to his work in the field, engaging, training and mobilizing the upcoming generation of pro-choice leaders. He now serves as the Program Director for a youth leadership development company in California.

The ‘knight in shining armor’ complex masqueraded as a legitimate way to engage Millennials. But don’t sweat it.
