Julie Caskey is a civil rights attorney and community activist, with two decades of litigation experience in federal and state courts. She's been working on electing Democratic women to political office since 2016. She currently works for Emerge California, the landmark six month political training program for Democratic women, from which she graduated in 2018. She's also attended the Arena Academy campaign management training program and now serves as East Bay recruiter for Close the Gap CA, an organization seeking to redress gender inequity in the California legislature, where women currently make up just 31% of the State Assembly and Senate. Julie has run local political campaigns, worked on federal and statewide races in California, and successfully fundraised for multiple first-time women candidates running for Congress.  


Julie previously practiced law as a public defender for adults and a law guardian for children in New York City, with additional experience in race discrimination, immigration deportation defense, working most recently for seven years as a staff attorney on prisoner cases in the US District Court in San Francisco. Julie received her J.D. from Columbia Law School, where she was a Human Rights Fellow at the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and a founding editor of the Journal of Gender and Law, which is still in publication. Prior to attending law school, she attended Barnard College and worked in NYC government and politics, including serving as Executive Director of the New York office of the National Women’s Political Caucus.

Julie also serves as a parent leader in the Piedmont, CA public schools attended by her four kids, as Co-Chair of the High School Site Council and on the H1 Bond Oversight Commission, as well as on the non-profit boards of Change a Path, an organization that fights sex-trafficking, and the Piedmont Appreciating Diversity Committee (PADC).  Through her involvement in the Piedmont schools and PADC, Julie co-organized multiple community-wide anti-bias training programs, which were attended by hundreds of Piedmont residents.
