Kathleen Pequeño profile picture

Born and raised in Queens, Kathleen is a social justice communications specialist who focuses her work on narrative strategy and the effective use of data for decision-making. Since the 1980s, Kathleen has been working with justice movements, often at the intersection of storytelling and technology.

She has volunteered, worked and consulted with over a hundred organizations across the United states on issues including racial and gender justice, family violence, queer liberation, education justice, immigration justice, the overuse of prisons and jails, and economic justice for farmworkers.

Kathleen has built (and rebuilt) scores of websites, CRMs, and email systems as well as supported organizations with planning and implementing strategic communications plans. She is an expert trainer with Idealware on communications planning and communications systems set-up. She serves as a communications adviser to Teachers Unite and CEANYC on technology and strategy. Kathleen also serves on the board of Restorative Justice Initiative to support the wider use of restorative and transformative justice practices in response to injustice, trauma and harm.

Kathleen lives in Brooklyn with her wife and a rambunctious Chihuahua-Sheltie mix.
