Biography

Marielle Carter

Marielle Carter

American and Trinidadian

I am a reproductive justice advocate. I served most recently as a senior associate at the Center for Reproductive Rights. My career, thus far, has been driven by my values in intersectionality and equity. These guiding principles took root as a result of my rich but differing upbringing in rural Arouca, Trinidad and Tobago, and urban Brooklyn, New York. They were further entrenched as I followed an educational path motivated by social justice.

In 2017, I completed my undergraduate degree in government and English literature at Georgetown University in Washington, DC. While at Georgetown, I interned and volunteered extensively with government institutions and issue-specific nonprofit organisations, including the US Department of the Treasury and the National Urban League. My multisectoral experience allowed me to witness and target inequity from both an intimate and macro perspective, which served to solidify my policy interests in gender equity and reproductive justice.
