ST.LOUIS — After an extensive and rigorous search, the NARAL Pro-Choice Missouri Board of Directors and staff are proud to announce that Mallory Schwarz has been selected as the organization’s new Executive Director. Mallory will officially assume the role on June 19, 2019.

“Joining the NARAL Pro-Choice Missouri team is a homecoming,” said Schwarz. “I started my career in public health advocacy as an intern at this organization and am honored to apply my expertise in women’s health policy and passion for reproductive justice to ensure all Missourians have access to a scope of reproductive healthcare options, including safe, legal abortion — without shame or stigma. I look forward to working with the NARAL Pro-Choice Missouri board and staff to continue to fight for and protect reproductive freedom for all in Missouri.”
