Katie Belanger

Owner, Katie B. Strategies, LLC

Katie Belanger launched Katie B. Strategies, LLC, an openly queer-owned business run with a strong commitment to equity and representation, in 2015 with the goal of bringing individuals and teams together to design actionable change and make that dream a reality.

Throughout her 20 years of social justice and political work, Katie has worked with nonprofits and for-profits, boards and staff teams, and coalitions and campaigns to align around a shared mission, build robust implementation plans, engage and develop leaders, and deliver real successes to the communities they serve. Highlights from her work include serving as the executive leadership for multiple national and state-based nonprofits; developing a network of statewide, cross-movement, equity-centered coalitions working to counter the abuse of state preemption and strengthen local democracy; developing and refining strategic plans for national and state voting rights and LGBTQ equality organizations; securing groundbreaking legal protections for same-sex couples and transgender individuals in her home state of Wisconsin; and, successfully fundraising for million dollar grassroots campaigns and political campaigns.
