Kate Ott believes that the moral choices we make affect who we are and show who we want to become. She wakes up in the middle of the night wondering how privilege is constructed and how this sustains systemic injustice. Kate is passionate about the intersections of health, education, and the environment for young people and tries to never disconnect issues of gender, race, class, and sexuality in her work.
Professionally, Kate Ott is Associate Director of the Religious Institute on Sexual Morality, Justice and Healing, a non-profit that advocates for sexual and reproductive justice in faith communities. She is an author of a variety of faith-based guidebooks. She's currently at work on a book project about adolescent sexual ethics and writes educational materials for ChristianThought.com. Kate has a PhD in Christian Social Ethics from Union Theological Seminary in New York.
Kate is a Midwestern transplant to the Northeast. She has a few favorite places: anywhere with her two kids and partner, floating in the middle of a freshwater lake, in front of the wood burning stove on a snowy day, and in a classroom (broadly defined) having transformative conversations. We are absolutely ecstatic that Kate has chosen to join our writers' community and to share her many interests and ideas with us here.
