Katie O’Connell, Digital Director, is a digital producer and strategist who believes that digital communication has the ability to spark movements and change culture. After living in Eastern Europe and Central Asia in childhood, her family moved back to the D.C. area where she and her sisters helped her mom provide care for her grandmother with leukemia.
She began her work in social justice as an undergraduate organizer fighting against abortion restrictions in Virginia, and developed her digital skillset at organizations including Planned Parenthood, People For the American Way, Priorities USA, and PL+US. Centering the most impacted and maintaining a lens of justice are critical to her work.
Currently, she is also pursuing a masters of education in sexuality studies. She still lives in Virginia with her wild rescue dog Ella and bakes cinnamon rolls (at least) once a week.
