Halle Jeremie is a senior in the Honors program at Simmons University, pursuing a double major in Political Science and Africana Studies with a minor in History and the 2020 recipient of the Ellen Paradise Fisher Award for Activism in Action. Her passion for reproductive rights stems from a desire to address historical disenfranchisement of women. She focuses her classwork and activism on ensuring accessible reproductive care to communities who have been historically marginalized.
Halle co-founded the Simmons chapter of Amnesty International and has served as the chapter’s president for three years where she organized several events focused on intersectional approaches to reproductive justice and education.
In addition to her local activism, Halle has also conducted archival research at the Harvard Medical Library for the Museum of Contraception and Abortion in Vienna, Austria. She also participated in a study abroad program in Argentina where she focused on disparities in maternal health, infant nutrition, and reproductive choice.
Halle has worked with NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts for more than three years as a development intern, aiding in day-to-day fundraising operations as well as events like Champions for Choice. After graduating from Simmons, Halle hopes to attend law school and eventually practice civil rights or criminal law.
