Kati is the co-founder and Director of VoteEqualityUS
, a nationwide, nonpartisan, grassroots effort to ensure the 28th Amendment (Equal Rights) is added to the Constitution. Prior to running VoteEqualityUS, she ran VAratifyERA, Virginia’s campaign that achieved Virginia’s ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment in January 2020. Her efforts are driven by her own life’s experiences, the interest of her two children in correcting the purposeful, historical exclusion of women from our Constitution, and the hope that incarcerated women will one day have a new tool in their legal toolbox to challenge gender discrimination by the government. Kati is committed to advancing all forms of equality and believes voter suppression is the major factor in elected officials advancing discriminatory policies and laws.
