Interfaith Alliance Proudly Announces Appointment of Katy Joseph as Director of Policy & Advocacy 

WASHINGTON, D.C. — This week, Interfaith Alliance, the only national interfaith organization committed to protecting the integrity of religion and democracy in the United States, announced the appointment of Katy Joseph as Director of Policy & Advocacy.

An experienced advocate and attorney, Joseph has served as the John and Eula May Baugh Policy and Legislation Advisor for the past two years. Since joining Interfaith Alliance, she has led campaigns that advance a progressive vision of religious freedom, combat the misuse of religion to discriminate, and challenge common assumptions about the “faith vote.”

In her new role Joseph will direct Interfaith Alliance’s federal policy program, including initiatives that protect freedom of belief, combat hate and bigotry, strengthen the separation of religion and government, and bolster the civil rights and civil liberties of all Americans. 

Rabbi Jack Moline, president of Interfaith Alliance, states, “When Katy joined our staff, the quality of our advocacy and analysis increased exponentially. She is admired by our allies, respected by legislators and valued beyond words by the Interfaith Alliance staff and board. I am so happy to be able to give her this promotion that she has more than earned.”
