Anjuli Kronheim Katz

Meet Heroes at Villains Honoree Anjuli Kronheim Katz
Before Anjuli Kronheim Katz moved to LA from the east coast, she didn't think of it as a city that would be a hotbed of social justice work. Like many people she had stereotyped it as being primarily the city of the entertainment industry. However, she quickly realized that it was rich with many of the advocacy opportunities she was looking for. She was selected as an NLC fellow in 2012 when she was still new to the area, which provided her with great opportunity to build connections in her adopted city.
Anjuli first honed her organizing skills at Common Cause where she worked primarily on campaign finance initiatives. Then she joined Bend the Arc where she organized the Jewish community around issues of social and economic justice. There, she successfully fought off an attempt to exempt non-profits from LA's minimum wage ordinance.
More recently, Anjuli has been appointed to the Santa Monica housing commission. It's a new policy area for her, but she's excited to use the skills she's acquired in her advocacy work to push for more affordable housing in an area that's quickly becoming inaccessible to many lower income people.
