NWJP is thrilled to welcome Kate Suisman, who will be joining us to support our coalition work, including the Oregon Coalition to Stop Wage Theft and the newly formed Injured Worker's Project. Kate comes to us from VOZ Workers’ Rights Education Project, where she worked as a volunteer attorney in their wage theft program for two years. Originally from Connecticut, Kate first came to Portland to study at Reed College. She then headed back east to New York, where she worked for five years with the City Council. Her work there inspired her to go to law school; Kate earned her J.D. at CUNY School of Law in 2010.
