Women's group adds Rep. Speier aide

Posted by Keturah Hetrick on Dec. 5, 2017

The National Partnership for Women and Families picked up a new federal affairs manager from the office of Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.).

Michelle McGrain, who joins the nonprofit this month, worked for former Sen. Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) before joining Speier's office as a legislative assistant a year ago. Speier, an outspoken women's activist, made headlines this fall for sharing her experience as a victim of sexual assault and encouraging others in Washington to do the same through the viral #metoo hashtag campaign.

The nonprofit NPWF focuses on advocacy related to health care, reproductive rights and workplace issues.
