Kaitlyn Boecker is a policy manager at the Drug Policy Alliance's Office of National Affairs in Washington, D.C., where she supports ONA’s work to advance DPA’s federal legislative agenda.
Kaitlyn’s interest in drug policy issues stems from witnessing the devastation the drug war has wreaked on families and communities, and from her commitment to promoting social and racial justice and ending the inequities in the US criminal justice system.
Before joining DPA, Kaitlyn worked in government affairs at the American Hotel & Lodging Association, the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget’s Campaign to Fix the Debt, and Mehlman Vogel Castagnetti Inc. (a boutique lobbying firm), and served as an intern in the Office of the Vice President.
Kaitlyn graduated from Pomona College in Claremont, CA with a BA in Politics and Environmental Analysis. A native of Iowa and Nebraska, Kaitlyn now lives in D.C., loves both local and national politics, and enjoys cheering on the Nats and the Wizards.
