Krithika is currently a second year MSPH candidate in Health Policy and Management at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and holds a BA from the University of Pittsburgh. She has over five years of campus and city-wide organizing experience, working on campaigns and actions advocating for economic justice, LGBTQ+ justice, reproductive justice, immigrant justice, and intimate partner violence survivor advocacy in the Pittsburgh area. She also worked as a Tamil interpreter, which exposed her to the importance of language accessibility in healthcare. In Baltimore, she’s held positions as a social justice program assistant at JHU SOURCE and as an intern with FreeState Justice. Currently, she is a public health intern at Rebuild, Overcome, and Rise Center at the University of Maryland School of Law working on a project looking at barriers to obtaining criminal injuries compensation in Maryland. These experiences allowed her to work with a variety of community-based organizations, understand & study health disparities and inequities within Baltimore, and motivate her to continue to work with the Baltimore community. Her reproductive justice interests include advocating for LGBTQ+ inclusive healthcare and expanding healthcare access for immigrant, undocumented, and non-english speaking populations. Krithika is ultimately hoping to use her experience at NARAL to help learn more about legal and public health perspectives on these topics. Her future plans include continuing to advocate for reproductive justice & equitable health policies, and applying to law school.
