Roberta Riley has worked tirelessly to empower women and secure a healthy future for our children and all future generations. In her former role as Legal Counsel for Planned Parenthood, she argued landmark federal court decisions that prompted American companies to cover prescription contraception in worker health plans. More recently, on behalf of Friends of UNFPA, she lead the World at 7 Billion Project, a collaborative effort to emphasize the connection between women’s health and dignity and sustainability.
She continues to advocate for health as a fundamental human right in her current role as Communication Director for Northwest Health Law Advocates, a non-profit dedicated to health care for all.
In recognition of her achievements on behalf of women, she has received several honors including a MS. Magazine Women of the Year Award. This spring, Huxley College of the Environment named Ms. Riley it's 2014 Distinguished Alum.
