Paris Secretary Candidate Kate Barrett

My name is Kate Barrett, and I would like to submit my candidacy for the position of Secretary of the DAF Paris Chapter.

I am a Seattle transplant, living in France since 2011. Currently a project manager at RATP Group, I have been passionate my entire adult life about the importance of public services in providing equal opportunity and access to all members of society, regardless of means or background.

I joined DAF in 2016 to help fight the erosion of democratic norms and institutions in the US. Today I am eager to take this commitment to fairness and social justice further by contributing directly to the effectiveness of DAF Paris’s new organization in the lead-up to the 2020 elections.

As a member of Indivisibles-France and DAF, I have like many of you participated in numerous resistance efforts, from GOTV with Postcards to Voters, to the 2017 Women's March, to the March for Our Lives in 2018. It would be an honor to lend my organizational and communication skills to the DAF Paris chapter, and to serve in the role of Secretary.
