Kara Monaghan


Kara Monaghan - 2024 NLC Los Angeles Fellow

Kara is a community organizer with experience in competitive political campaigns across the country and is especially passionate about immigration and rural advocacy from her experience organizing along the southern border in Arizona. She grew up surfing in Southern California and attended school in Santa Barbara and Hawaii and has a bachelor's degree in both U.S. History and Spanish which she earned at her time at the University of Hawaii Manoa. In her spare time enjoys hiking with her dog, cooking, and painting. What drives Kara's passion to continue in organizing is a strong belief that there is nothing stronger than a community that comes together behind a cause. This passion combined with a deep desire to serve the community that raised her, pushes her to work to elect representatives who will fight for their constituents every single day.
