Nargis joined the Collective Power Board in 2019. She is a first-gen WOC J.D. Candidate at Yale Law School in the Class of 2024 with the hopes of lawyering for reproductive justice in the future. She was a Litigation Summer Associate with the Center for Reproductive Rights in the summer of 2022 (when Dobbs came out, yikes!) and is the 22-23 President of the Yale Law If/When/How Chapter.
She graduated from UMass Amherst in 2018 with a degree in Women’s Studies and a certificate in Reproductive Health, Rights, and Justice. Nargis was a student organizer with Collective Power for a couple of years where she helped coordinate the annual conference. Based on this experience, Nargis developed a workshop on student organizing which she presented at the Collective Power annual conference and at SisterSong’s Let’s Talk About Sex! Conference. Between 2018-2021, Nargis worked as an advocate for survivors of sexual and domestic violence in Hampshire County and served on the Board of Directors for Voices From Inside in Western MA.
