Katie is proud to serve as the Director of the Green Collar Jobs Campaign at the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights (whew! Just use: @ellabakercenter). In this role she guides work across California to build a thriving economy that puts the planet AND people before profit. This work includes, but is certainly not limited to, ensuring those hurt first and worst by the polluting economy are the architects of the new one - in policy, culture, and at the ballot. A longtime organizer, Katie started her professional work at Planned Parenthood, connecting grassroots client services across 13 counties to California's annual legislative and electoral battles. A California native, her work outside the state includes candidate campaigning in New York, Ohio, and Florida, where she connected cutting-edge data tracking with tried-and-true organizing principles.
