|For Immediate Release: July 18, 2018
Alyssa Mastromonaco, who previously served as Deputy Chief of Staff to President Obama and former executive at Vice and A&E, is joining NARAL Pro-Choice America as a Senior Advisor and spokesperson. Mastromonaco joins NARAL as the leading pro-choice advocacy organization is staffing up to fight the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
Last week, NARAL launched ads in key states, announced a national day of action for August 26th and re-launched the People’s Defense, a broad coalition to defeat Kavanaugh. Mastromonaco will help with these and other NARAL efforts, as well as serve as a national spokesperson for the organization.
“I can’t think of anyone more passionate about the fights ahead for women’s rights and for the soul of our democracy than Alyssa, and we’re thrilled to have her as part of our team,” said Ilyse Hogue, President of NARAL Pro-Choice America. “Women around the country know that Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court is a mortal threat to Roe v Wade, and will make good on the President’s promise to criminalize abortion and punish women. This is an all hands on deck moment and Alyssa is leading the charge. Nothing less than our fundamental rights and freedoms are at stake in this fight.”
“Too much is on the line to sit on the sidelines at this moment,” said Alyssa Mastromonaco. “I wish this was not the fight we were having, but given that it is, there is no one I’d rather be in this fight with than NARAL and Ilyse. If Brett Kavanaugh is approved by the Senate, he will turn the clock back on generations worth of progress for women and families.”
In addition to her work in the Obama White House and as a media executive, Mastromonaco is also a best-selling author and a contributor to Crooked Media.
