Kathy Miller is president of the Texas Freedom Network -- a nonpartisan, grassroots organization of more than 35,000 religious and community leaders across the state that advances a mainstream agenda of religious freedom and individual liberties to counter the religious right. The organization has been instrumental in defeating initiatives backed by the religious right in Texas, including private school vouchers, textbook censorship and faith-based deregulation.
Kathy has appeared on Texas and national broadcast media and has testified before the Texas Legislature, State Board of Education and Congress. Based in her deep belief in the tremendous strength of the grassroots, Kathy has focused her career on mobilizing support for progressive issues, training community leaders on the political process and inspiring activists to combat far-right political extremism.
Before joining TFN in 2005, Kathy served as communications director for the Texas Council on Family Violence and National Domestic Violence Hotline and as public affairs director for Planned Parenthood Federation of Austin.
Kathy earned a degree in political science from the University of Texas at Austin and attended the University of Texas graduate school, studying philosophy. She is the mother of two daughters, Olivia and Caroline, both attending public school in Austin.
