St. John Holy Trinity AME: Meet Katie Hill

St John Holy Trinity Meet Katie Hill for Congress

Sunday August 12, 2018 at 11:30 A.M. – 12:30 P.M.  
St. John Holy Trinity A.M.E. Church
9543 E. Avenue Q10, Littlerock, California 93543

Katie Hill has spent her entire life growing up in neighbourhoods in the 25th District from Santa Clarita to Antelope Valley. Today, her sister and their parents all live in the District and Katie resides in Agua Dulcé with her husband and animals on a small farm. She knows the values of her community and is running to make sure they are represented in Congress.

Not long after graduating CSUN with a B.A. in English and a Masters in Public Administration, Katie began her career as a policy advocate and changemaker at PATH (People Assisting the Homeless), a non-profit developing affordable and supportive places for people to live.

As its Executive Director, Katie raised PATH from a local force for good in Los Angeles with a $5M budget to the largest non-profit provider of homes for the homeless in the state of California, operating with yearly operations of over $50M. She helped champion and pass historic ballot initiatives Measure H and Prop HHH to help alleviate homelessness in Los Angeles County.

She’s also all for getting big money out of politics — her campaign is truly grassroots and won’t take a dime from corporations or Super PACs, because it would be a disservice to you if your representative was beholden to something outside of you and your family’s best interest.

Katie’s roots make up who she is. She is the daughter of a local nurse and police officer. Her family is one of extensive military service, who exemplify the American dream. Her grandparents grew up in poverty but found new lives through service. Her grandfather, Scott, went to Yale on an ROTC scholarship before joining the Navy and later becoming an aerospace engineer on the Apollo space program. Her grandfather, Blair, served in the US Army and used the G.I. Bill to become a Princeton-educated political science professor at UCLA.

Katie went to public schools all within the lines of the 25th District. She believes that teachers and administrators deserve to have an advocate and voice in Congress, someone who has been in their classrooms, is a product of their hard work and will fight for the best interest of their students. 

At 30 years old, Katie is the youngest candidate in this race. She is rooted in her community and believes that the 25th District can be at the forefront of progress. She champions for the most vulnerable of our communities and is a proven leader who has directly worked with monumental statewide legislation.

Katie Hill is a new kind of candidate, who will work on behalf of all members of this community, not special interest groups or Washington insiders.
