Like so many young Americans in the 1960s, Kat vividly remembers the assassinations of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., President John F. Kennedy, Senator Robert Kennedy, and Malcolm X. The country was in the midst of a fight to obtain justice and equality for all of its people, as it still is today. As someone who was lucky enough not to be deprived of the American dream based on bigotry and brutality, she is committed to being an ally against the moral injustices and exploitative economic systems which undermine what our American society could truly be – a Beloved Community for all people.
Over hundreds of years, the powerful have normalized attacks and oppression against people of color, the poor, and our planet itself. Slavery, environmental destruction, redlining, police brutality, and disinvestment are just some of the tools of institutional racism. This institutional harm will not change, will not stop ripping away any chance of prosperity for so many unless we change it. Today we all have an obligation, and a role to play in helping to tear out injustice by the root.
In partnership with communities across the United States, Kat works in service of restoring social, racial, and gender justice and environmental well-being for an equitable and inclusive world.
