She has received recognition for her work, including a “Woman of Vision” award from Gloria Steinem through the Ms. Foundation for Women. Her career has been varied, from serving in AmeriCorps, working with the Lummi Nation in Washington, to teaching Political Science in West Virginia. She deeply values working in coalition and is called upon regularly to speak around the state and country.

Margaret serves on the Groundswell Fund Advisory Board. She is also a founding member of OneKanawha, a community-based anti-oppression group, and is active in St. John’s Episcopal Church of Charleston, a parish that actively engages in social justice outreach and ministry.

Haley Gibson

She/her/hers

Outreach Organizer
Haley received her BA in Communication Studies and a minor in Public Relations from West Virginia University. She is passionate about a range of things, from reproductive justice, to spending quality time with her friends and family. She finds reproductive justice very important since it is still a stigma in rural areas, such as her hometown. She hopes to spread positivity about reproductive health, and social justice in general. She is excited to work for her home state to help grow empathy, acceptance, and support from fellow West Virginians.

Haley loves to spend her free time with her rescue cat, Virgo, watching movies, and traveling to see her college friends in their hometowns.
