A Story of Activism: About Cathy
Catherine (Cathy) Spahr recently ran for office for the 160th PA Legislative District. She is a mother, environmental activist, and people’s champion. Running for office broadened Cathy's knowledge and understanding of many issues beyond her primary area of activism (the environment). With this new knowledge, Cathy’s advocacy has broadened beyond the environment. She has heightened appreciation for the power of our voices and wants to continue to speak up and to use her voice to speak up about more than just the environment. On her website you can learn about Cathy and her path to advocacy, as well as information on issues she finds important to the well-being of our community and future: environmental protection and development of clean energy, women’s rights including equal pay and reproductive health, fair school funding, gun violence prevention, LBGTQ, and developing an effective response to the drug crisis in Pennsylvania.
