The Common Good

Catherine Woodiwiss

Associate Web Editor

Catherine Woodiwiss, Associate Web Editor, is interested in civic understandings of justice and grace, the messy intersection of faith and politics, and disrupting assumptions about all the above. Catherine comes to Sojourners from the Center for American Progress, where she wrote on values and voting, climate change, clean energy, poverty, economic inequality, and religion in the 2012 presidential elections.

Previous to her work with CAP, Catherine started up the Washington, D.C.-based office for an international development NGO, where she led partnership strategy with embassies, foundations, and the for-profit sector, and designed programs for field projects in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Central Asia. Catherine has also worked with the Faith & Politics Institute to promote bipartisan leadership, interfaith dialogue, and racial reconciliation among members of Congress and Hill staff.

Catherine graduated from Colby College with a bachelor’s degree in international studies and anthropology. Abiding likes include porch jams, getting grubby in nature, and futbol. Abiding dislikes are happy hours, small talk, abuses of power, and football. The jury's still out on twitter: find her @chwoodiwiss.
