Rachel Fleischer is the Executive Director of Young Invincibles. She brings nearly two decades of experience building advocacy and public awareness campaigns to this role, most recently serving as Senior Director at Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
Fleischer has spent the last seven years leading some of Planned Parenthood’s largest health care and advocacy efforts, including the most recent campaign to defeat congressional “defund” efforts, the organization’s consumer education program around the Affordable Care Act, the launch of Planned Parenthood’s breast health initiative, and Planned Parenthood’s 100th anniversary celebration. She also managed the Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s Independent Expenditure communications work during the 2012 Presidential campaign.
Prior to her work at Planned Parenthood, Rachel oversaw numerous issue-based advocacy and communications efforts for a range of foundations, non-profit organizations, and political candidates at two award-winning consulting firms — Behr Communications and GMMB.
Fleischer lives in Washington DC with her husband Lucas and their two boys, Sam and Miles. She hails from South Jersey — and is proud of it.
