Happy (slightly early) Birthday, Miriam!

This Saturday is Miriam’s birthday! I remember completely geeking out the first time I met Miriam – I was like, that’s Radical Doula! I’m so blessed to now count her as a great friend and colleague.

Miriam brings a depth of knowledge about reproductive justice and an ability to refocus issues on what’s important, as you can see in her recent, vital post on the debate about whether President Obama is pro-choice. She’s responsible for some incredible organizing and activism offline as well, helping to found the Doula Project and serving on the Board of the Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice.

Miriam’s also been writing amazing longer form journalism, like her recent pieces at Colorlines on stigmatization of young moms, home birth, and racist anti-abortion campaigns.

And of course no Miriam birthday post would be complete without Courtney’s now classic rap, “The Business”:

Wish Miriam a happy birthday in the comments!
