Board Statement: SPARK Reproductive Justice NOW! Announces New Executive Director
Randi Gregory, Director Of Programs
Randi is a native of GA and studied Speech Communications at the University of Georgia.

She most recently worked as the Central/Southern Ohio Organizer for NARAL Pro Choice Ohio which sparked her interest for Reproductive Justice. Randi enjoys travelling, good or bad movies, is a Gates Millennium Scholar and a proud member of Gamma Phi Delta Sorority Inc.
Agbo Ikor, Community Organizer
Agbo is a womanist from Stockbridge, GA. Though always interested in civil rights and feminism, Agbo did not become more fully involved in activism and social justice until she attended Vanderbilt University, receiving a Bachelor’s in Women and Gender Studies, Psychology, and Philosophy. 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.
Jasmine Cummings, Community Organizer
Jasmine is a queer, bi- racial, multi- ethnic Black American community organizer. Born in Virginia and raised in North Carolina, she has over 10 years of experience in coordinating community programs across the Southeast region. Jasmine obtained her Bachelor of Science in Foods & Nutrition with a concentration in Dietetics from Appalachian State University. She became active in reproductive justice during her service with the United States Peace Corps. Serving as a Community Youth Empowerment Volunteer in the Republic of Fiji, Jasmine advocated to implement a comprehensive sexual and reproductive health curriculum that centered on personal choice. Motivated by her students, she assisted in the mobilization of youth in the province of Macuata to address sexual and reproductive health concerns such as teenage pregnancy, LGBTQIA+ stigma and increasing rates of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). With SPARK, Jasmine hopes to raise awareness to the intersectionality of reproductive justice and inspire progressive legislation in the South, especially at the grass roots.

She has always been involved in building up her community through advocating for the homeless and inner-city youth, as well as various community services projects both personally and through school organizations. Though Erin has worked on many of the film and television projects around Atlanta as a Production Assistant, she is excited to alter her career path with her position at SPARK. Erin loves to spend time outdoors and uses both painting and writing to express herself creatively.
Kelli Goode, 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.
Zhorelle Brown, Office Administrator
Zhorelle began her community outreach with the Jamaica Forum for Lesbians All-Sexuals and Gays in Kingston, Jamaica. Raised in a conservative and unyielding culture, she seeks to undo some of the damage caused by Jamaica’s socially embedded homophobia. She worked with the organization on the constitutional challenge to Jamaica’s law making consensual same sex activity illegal. During that time, she realized the impact advocacy had on individuals and society as a whole, even when it falls short of its stated goals. Zhorelle decided that she wanted to use her privilege to advocate for those who do not have the access to resources. She received her BA in Political Science from Stony Brook university and continues to work with J-FLAG as a member of their program oversight committee. She is eager to begin her career in advocacy here in Atlanta building on her aim to make the whole world a safe and healthy space for queer persons.
