Director of Advocacy, Education & Rural Projects
Kansas Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence

Kathy Ray is the Director of the Advocacy, Education & Rural Projects Division for the Kansas Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence (KCSDV).  She started with KCSDV in 2006 and prior to that, she provided advocacy at a Kansas sexual assault and domestic violence program.  She has been in supervisory and leadership roles for the last 12 years, and began providing supervisors’ training for KCSDV member programs in 2013.  Recognizing the unique dynamics of trauma work and supervision, in 2016 she partnered with a member program executive director to develop a supervisor’s training curriculum specific to advocacy that focuses on building capacity for trauma-informed supervision in Kansas.
