Kate Franklin is the Programs and Communications Associate at WRJ. She supports WRJ communication and marketing campaigns, advocacy initiatives, and Board programming. Originally from outside of Philly, she holds a BA in Theatre and Communications from Northeastern University, where she focused on creating art aimed at ending sexual violence on college campuses. She moved to NYC in September 2021 and loves baking three-layer cakes, seeing musicals, and obsessing over any random dog she passes on the street.
If you would have told 18-year-old Kate that she would one day openly talk about the most painful, and for a long time, “shameful” experience of her life to hundreds and hundreds of people, her jaw would still be on the floor.
We want to wish you a happy and healthy secular new year! With the new year comes the opportunity to reflect on the past, take stock of what’s important, and set goals for the future. Last year may not have been the relief from COVID-19 we all had wanted, but it showed us that with a strong network of WRJ sisters, we can still find connection in sisterhood, spirituality in studying Torah, and purpose in helping others through social justice work. We are excited to see what the new year has to offer and want to remind you that WRJ has the resources to help you achieve your sisterhood resolutions for the upcoming year.
