Kelley Robinson (Human Rights Campaign) Kelley Robinson talks family, fighting back and the future Kelley Robinson, the new president of the Human Rights Campaign, is the first Black queer woman to lead the organization.
She’s also the mother of a toddler. Being a mom and wife is “the center of everything I do,” she told me in an interview about her family, her work and her vision for the future.
Before starting at HRC last November, Robinson was executive director of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. She said her work at HRC is “deeply informed” by the reproductive rights world and a deep concern about racial and social justice.
On a personal note, she shared, “Strides in reproductive health and reproductive rights have been fundamentally important in building the family of my dreams.” She and her wife began their family via reciprocal in vitro fertilization, with her carrying her wife’s egg.
