Kathryn organizes member committees to transform their worksites and achieve the Garment Worker Center’s industry-wide goals. They began organizing in Los Angeles by recruiting members and conducting community-based research for an ally worker center in 2016, where they developed a deep commitment to grassroots immigrant movements. She moved on to use her field organizing skills in research on immigrant social service use and base-building to expand outdoor access for urban communities. They decided to return, in 2020, to the worker rights movement where they could focus on member leadership development. When not at GWC, Kathryn enjoys LA’s outdoors and participates in transnational solidarity organizing.
