Jennifer K. Brown

Vice President and Legal Director, Legal Momentum
Jennifer K. Brown joined Legal Momentum as Vice President and Legal Director in August 2002. She came to us from the New York State Attorney General's Office, where she directed the first-ever Reproductive Rights Unit in the Civil Rights Bureau. She credits three and a half grueling years at the Civil Division of the United States Attorney's Office - her post before the Attorney General -- with teaching her how to be a lawyer. Jennifer also was a Fellow with the ACLU's Reproductive Freedom Project, and a clerk to Judge Pierre Leval on the Second Circuit, following her graduation from Yale Law School. Jennifer's involvement in feminist advocacy began long before law school. In the early 1980s she was a volunteer activist with NOW-NYC, and was the chapter's full-time executive director and then president from 1983-1987.
