Help Us Fight Back Against Efforts to Roll Back Gender Justice

Extremist judges will not stop endangering the lives of pregnant people or people who may become pregnant—overturning Roe v. Wade, attacking medication abortion, threatening the future of IVF, and this week at SCOTUS, emergency abortion care.

Our lawyers are waging strategic fights that make clear what is at stake for people who can become pregnant and seek to bolster our fundamental rights to control our lives, futures, and destinies.

Johnna is the Law Center’s Pro Bono Senior Counsel, where she serves as the primary NWLC lead on pro bono project development and partner experience for pro bono engagement across the spectrum of NWLC program areas and initiatives. She coordinates across all program teams to identify, discuss, and develop pro bono project opportunities with a focus on emerging and priority work for key issues central to the lives of women and girls.

In this capacity, she facilitated pro bono partnerships and projects, reviewed and revised pro bono program policies, advised how to retain and appropriately recognize volunteers, and coordinated industry-wide days of service like PBI’s annual Financial Institution Pro Bono Day (in 2022, more than 1100 in-house volunteers from financial institutions served over 1000 clients). Previously, she was Resource Counsel at the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL), where she managed a weekly webinar discussion series, maintained the NACDL Resource Center, and provided technical and substantive assistance to NACDL members. Johnna began her legal career focused on reentry issues and criminal defense, particularly capital clemency.
