Policy, Advocacy, and Public Awareness

Work History

Kate Sachnoff

I bring 30-plus years of related experience in public policy, advocacy and family services to the task. My career so far has afforded me experience in a variety of complementary settings: a funder organization, local government, and non-profit.

I have led the establishment of a public policy department at the LA County level, designed and implemented policy-advocacy grant funds, served in upper management in city government, created a place-based organization from the ground up, done community organizing, directly lobbied at the state and federal levels, built up and helped lead coalitions and collaborations, written proposals to foundations and established and operated a community grant-making fund.

All of this work focused on creating social justice, fighting poverty, empowerment and promoting prevention – through early childhood investments in particular. It is my belief that authentic relationships are essential to effective policy and advocacy work. In the decade-plus that I have been working in LA, I have built a broad network of local alliances through my position at First 5 LA, my consulting work and my community efforts.

It is gratifying to work on a variety of important issues, constantly learning, and collaborate with inspiring, high-octane colleagues.
