Farah Diaz-Tello, J.D., is Senior Counsel for If/When/How, where she helps develop and execute litigation strategy, contributes legal analysis and drafting expertise to assist state and grassroots partners in reaching their policy goals, and provides legal information and training to reproductive rights, health, and justice activists. She is a frequent speaker and guest lecturer in activist and academic forums, and is sought by media for her insights. Farah continues and expands the work she began in 2016 at the SIA Legal Team, which joined forces with If/When/How in 2019. Prior to the SIA Legal Team, Farah worked at National Advocates for Pregnant Women, where she established and helmed programs in human rights and birth justice. Her publications for scholarly and popular press address criminalization of pregnancy outcomes, economic coercion in childbirth, obstetric violence, and reproductive issues in pop culture.
Farah is a graduate of the CUNY Law School, where she was a Haywood Burns Fellow in Civil and Human Rights, and in 2017 was selected by the Rockwood Leadership Institute for the Reproductive Rights, Health, and Justice fellowship. She lives in NYC, but her heart is in Texas forever.
