Kate Schroder


A Cincinnati native who has always prioritized the needs of her community

Kate Schroder’s family has lived in Cincinnati for five generations. She has spent her career as a healthcare advocate, most recently as Vice President of the Clinton Health Access Initiative and on the Cincinnati Board of Health. The importance of healthcare is personal to Schroder –– in 2011, she was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, and saw firsthand the dysfunction in our healthcare system. Now cancer-free, she is running for Congress to make sure everyone has access to the healthcare they deserve.

A dedicated leader on reform

Schroder understands that the foundation of our democracy is free and fair elections, and that the outsized influence of Big Money in politics has pitted the system against everyday Americans. She is rejecting corporate PAC money, and will always fight to protect our access to the ballot box. Schroder will be a voice for the people of Ohio’s First Congressional District –– not the corporate special interests.

A prime pick-up opportunity

This district is ready to flip blue, and Republican Congressman Steve Chabot embodies so much that is corrupt with Washington politicians. He only narrowly won reelection in 2018, and Senator Sherrod Brown won this district in 2018. Chabot has a history of paying his family out of his own campaign funds, and has spent his two decades in Congress working for his Big Money donors. Meanwhile, Schroder has been working every day for the people in her community, and that’s what she will continue to do in Congress.

Reformer at Risk?

No Corporate PAC?
