Agbo has worked with Atlanta Women for Equality to fight sexual discrimination at school and work, and hopes to extend her passions into a career in social work and the law. Agbo hopes to work with SPARK to bring holistic reproductive change in the state she loves and the rest of the deep south.

Trans Leadership Coordinator
Kelli Goode is a writer, interdisciplinary artist, and Spark Reproductive Justice NOW’s Trans Leadership Coordinator. Kelli is a New Jersey native who moved to Atlanta to further her education and build community in QTPOC spaces. She found her passion for activism during her time navigating her undergraduate career at Georgia Gwinnett College where she battled with sexism, racism, misogynoir and transphobia.
Her work with Spark Reproductive Justice NOW is strengthening the Black Trans and GNC community while also being able to bring access and essentials to said community.
Carter (she, they)
Carter is an unapologetic, intersectional Black feminist. While she was born in Greensboro, North Carolina, Atlanta raised her. Most of Carter’s involvement in the realm of activism has consisted of the pursuit of racial justice and queer issues, particularly bisexual politics. She is incredibly passionate about expanding the ways in which we navigate and deconstruct the gender binary, both in our work and our personal lives.
She is very excited to support SPARK’s vision and to help expand awareness of current events related to reproductive justice in the South and beyond.
Ebony Short (they, he, she)

Before obtaining the community organizer position with SPARK RJ NOW! Ebony was a fellow and co-founding member of the black queer feminist student organization, Panthers For Black Feminism. What Ebony is most excited about coming onboard with SPARK is centering queer and trans people of color, educating folks about the reproductive justice struggle, and how it is inextricably linked to the myriad of other struggles perpetuated by capitalism.
