Feeling that divisiveness in politics had reached a critical point following the 2016 election, Katie formed a 5,000+ member grassroots organization, Count MI Vote, which became the umbrella organization that includes Voters Not Politicians and the Voters Not Politicians Ballot Committee. She is the Executive Director of the Voters Not Politicians Ballot Committee. Katie received a dual degree (BA) from Aquinas College in Sustainable Business and Community Leadership and is pursuing her MBA in Sustainable Business.
Why she’s committed to this effort:
“The people of Michigan have been locked out of effective change-making opportunities, but we have the power, energy, and drive to create a solution that ends gerrymandering and reinvigorates the very spirit of our democracy.”
