Laurie Bertram Roberts is the president of Mississippi National Organization for Women, a feminist activist, full spectrum doula and writer in Jackson, MS. Her family suspected she was trouble when at age 8 she preferred reading weekly news magazines over girly magazines. Her early fascination with liberal ideals, women's rights, was not quite welcome in her conservative fundamentalist Christian home.
She is incredibly passionate about reproductive justice and fighting all forms of oppression.
When not speaking truth to power she is likely hanging out with her children watching sci fi or doing other nerd like things.
