The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation announced that Aimee Arrambide will be joining the foundation as a Program Officer with the Gender Equity and Governance Program. Aimee will lead a portfolio of grants to advance reproductive equity in the United States. She will start on January 18.
Aimee has outstanding experience advocating for reproductive health, rights, and justice in the United States, most recently as the Executive Director of Avow Texas. Before joining Avow, she was a Program Manager and Reproductive Rights Policy Specialist at the Public Leadership Institute, where she helped to conceive and co-wrote the Playbook for Abortion Rights.
Aimee is excited to leverage her experience and her new role at the foundation to support organizations doing extraordinary work to protect women’s and families’ reproductive freedom across the country. She hopes to strengthen the ecosystem of organizations working to inform, organize, advocate, and deliver reproductive health services to all who need them.
She serves on the board of Equality Texas and the advisory council of ReproAction, and is a WeTestify Storyteller. Aimee was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, where she took many trips with her father to the clinic where he served as an abortion provider. She has a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from the University of Texas and earned her law degree at New York Law School, where she co-founded the school’s chapter of Law Students for Reproductive Justice (now If/When/How).
