Abigail Fisher


Abigail Fisher is a civic designer who believes her role is to hold space and break down bureaucracy so that communities can design for themselves. Using methods derived from communication design, service design, art, and social justice, Abigail weaves together groups of co-designers with professional and lived/living experience. Abigail was previously a design lead at New York City’s Civic Service Design Studio and is currently working with the Colorado Digital Service focused on improving mental health care through co-created technology and systems. Outside of her 9-5, Abigail works on the Roots of Reproductive Justice history project, aiming to make history accessible to activists, as well as supporting Parent’s Rights groups like Movement for Family Power and JMACforFamilies. Abigail is also a volunteer case lead with Cornell’s Clinic to End Tech Abuse (CETA), assisting survivors of intimate partner violence in securing their technology.
