Chelsea Gabriela Tejada is a Justice Catalyst Fellow at the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project, where she is working to protect the reproductive rights of noncitizen immigrants in government custody.
Chelsea will support pregnant immigrants using a combination of direct services, federal agency monitoring, and impact litigation to ensure their reproductive rights – including access to abortion – are not infringed. Before beginning at the ACLU, Chelsea graduated cum laude from Boston University School of Law. As a law student, she worked as a student attorney in the Immigrants’ Rights and Human Trafficking Clinic, completed a semester in practice at Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and served as Co-President of BU’s Latin American Law Students’ Association. She was also a BU Public Interest Scholar and completed a graduate certificate in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Prior to law school, Chelsea conducted reproductive health research at Ibis Reproductive Health. Chelsea is also a graduate of Amherst College.
