NARAL Pro-Choice America
Nancy Keenan began her tenure as president of NARAL Pro-Choice America in December 2004. Committed to working on behalf of America’s pro-choice majority, Nancy took the reigns of the organization pledging to protect and defend the American values of freedom, privacy and personal responsibility.
Before coming to NARAL Pro-Choice America, Nancy served as a Montana state legislator and State Superintendent of Public Instruction and ran a strong campaign for the U.S. House of Representatives in 2000. Nancy’s commitment to public service was shaped early in life as one of five children born into an Irish-Catholic family in Anaconda, Montana, a small copper smelter town in the western part of this "red" state. Nancy earned a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Montana State University and a master’s degree in Education Administration from the University of Montana. Before seeking elected office, Nancy taught children with disabilities in her hometown.
