Erica L. Taylor (she/her) is a remarkable, authentic, outspoken, skilled and dynamic woman who has overcome challenging obstacles to flourish as the powerhouse she is today. Raised only minutes away from Ferguson, MO, one of the most famous cities in America that planted roots for the Black Lives Matter movement, Taylor was determined to defy societ’;s odds of success for a black female child searching for identity in marginalized surroundings. It was through the education and cultural nourishment of Spelman College that Erica began to find her voice of change. In 2003, Erica was quickly promoted to national producer, on-air talent and co-writer for then no. 1 hit urban radio show, the Tom Joyner Morning Show. In 2011, she moved to LA to
work in television. From 2011-2014, she produced the NAACP Award winning shows Unsung and Unsung Hollywood by day and national syndicated radio by night until the radio show ended its run.

With 20 years of storytelling experience, Erica is now an impact filmmaker, with a spiritual focus on projects that address significant issues effecting women and
underrepresented groups. She produced The Invisible Vegan (2019) documentary examining veganism in the black community which led to her current fiscally-sponsored project, RED ALERT: THE FIGHT AGAINST FIBROIDS aimed at giving visibility to the vast number of women suffering from
uterine fibroid tumors. Having suffered from reproductive health trauma, Erica is an advocate for reproductive health awareness under the Red Alert brand, also serving as the National Ambassador for the Fibroid Fighters Foundation. She is also an invited member of the Myovant Sciences, Pfizer Inc. Uterine Health Advisory Board.
