Board of Advisors: Sevonna Brown

Sevonna Brown is the Human Rights Project Manager at Black Women’s Blueprint. She is a Reproductive Justice Advocate for women of color, as well as a full-spectrum doula and birthworker through Ancient Song Doula Services and the Doula Project.

Sevonna, a recent graduate of Williams College, dedicates her work to the survival strategies Black women build from rituals, sacred truths, and the ways they honor the intergenerational narratives of their bodies and reproductive herstories. Her organizational affiliations include Spirit of a Woman Leadership Development Institute and Standing in Our Power, a Women of Color Transformative Leadership Institute.

Most recently she received the ELLA Fellowship through the Sadie Nash Leadership Programs where she will conduct a workshop series on reproductive justice for young women of color through grassroots organizing. As a survivor she seeks to bridge the connections between reproductive justice and anti-sexual violence advocacy through her cultural work, human rights lens, and womanist frameworks.
