Katie Brophy is running for Kentucky State Senate in District 37. She is a native Kentuckian and earned her undergraduate and law degrees at the University of Kentucky.
Katie has been a small business owner and attorney for over forty years. She considers herself an advocate and activist and her policy goals reflect this fighter mentality: protecting the welfare of animals, increasing access to affordable healthcare, legalizing marijuana and expanding the use of hemp products, protecting women’s reproductive rights, addressing climate change and protecting the environment, enacting common sense gun control, protecting union rights and repealing Kentucky’s “right-to-work” law, increasing the minimum wage, and expanding and protecting voting rights.
Brophy represents a number of non-profits and is an active family law practitioner. She is a former board member of the national Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) and Bridgehaven Mental Health Services in Louisville, KY. Brophy is not religious and is a proponent of secularism.
