Reproductive Rights, Health, and Justice
Alexandra (Allie) Lahey has been an unapologetic queer and feminist activist and Ohio State Organizer with URGE: Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity, where she focused on civic engagement, trained and mobilized young Ohioans for reproductive justice.
She proudly hails from the Midwest and graduated from Bowling Green State University in 2014 with a BS in Human Development and Family Studies. She was student journalist and chapter leader with URGE, where she led the fight for accessible menstrual products and organized the first intersectional Take Back the Night rally on her campus.
As a 2013 Young People For Fellow, she worked on her campus to change sexual assault policies to make resources more accessible for survivors and has been an active alumni dedicated to training the next generation of progressive activists.
She also worked previously as an advocate at a domestic violence shelter, and with the American Association of University Womenâs Tech Trek, a STEM camp for 8th grade girls. In her spare time, she likes to do trivia, travel, binge-watch Netflix and play with her cat, Mouse.
Phone: Online Sexual Assault Prevention Program Allie envisions a college campus with a variety of resources available to victims/survivors after a sexual assault occurs, as well as proactive educational tools to engage students in discussion surrounding consent early on in their college careers. Allies Blueprint includes an online educational program required by all freshmen on campus, discussing victim-blaming, alcohol and sexual assault, created with input from students on campus and with inclusive images and faces. Allies vision also includes a link to Resources on the front page of the student login portal through the school website so students can easily access information about reporting a sexual assault on campus and to law enforcement and on where to seek support.
