Emily Martin

Executive Director, Avow

About me

Emily Martin is currently serving as the interim executive director of Avow – Unapologetic Abortion Advocacy. Avow is a Texas based organization that works to secure unrestricted abortion care and reproductive rights for all Texans through community-building, education and political advocacy. Emily started with the organization as an intern in 2013, just days before the famous filibuster. She focuses on the operations, finances, and human resources of the organization as well as their Austin-based policy work. She also moonlights as a bookkeeper for several organizations around Texas. She went to the University of Texas for her undergrad where she also worked as a sexual health peer educator. She then attended NYU for a masters in public health. During this time she interned for the National Institute of Reproductive Health. Returning to Texas and fighting with her community for abortion access was the only thing that made sense after a few years in New York City.  Outside of work, she loves the outdoors, snack food, reading for pleasure and lots of housewives binging. She currently lives in Austin with her husband and their cat, Bruce and dog, Walter.
