Born to Jenny Graham and Peter Kerwin in Providence, Kat grew up on the east side of the City. While attending La Salle Academy, Kat found her love for politics and social justice. At the University of Wisconsin-Madison, she studied Political Science and Geography and was nationally recognized for her organizing efforts in the defense of student power and gun violence prevention.
She is excited to have found a home in Ward 12. She is looking forward to a grassroots campaign that lifts up working class and marginalized communities. She will be committed to being an ethical and transparent voice for Ward 12 on the City Council.
