Katie Lorah, Interim Community and Marketing Director

Katie leads the Community & Marketing team, which helps tell the story of a neighbor-led movement of positive change and helps mobilize residents to take steps into civic action.

Previously, she has led communications and marketing around safer streets and better public transit at Transportation Alternatives, run open space master planning and coastal resilience projects with the New York City Parks Department, and led communications for the early stages of New York's High Line project.

She holds a masters in urban planning from MIT and a bachelors in journalism from NYU, and has long had a passion for using digital tools to make civic engagement and public processes more equitable. 

Katie recently relocated to her hometown of Seattle, Washington after nearly twenty years in New York City. She loves the mountains but misses the subway.
