Wonder Woman in Business, Catherine Lew

CATHERINE LEW, Co-Founder & Principal Consultant

The Lew Edwards Group

With over three decades of experience in community organizing and politics, Catherine Lew is known as one of California's most successful advocates for local government and women running for office. A first-generation California native, she was raised in the Salinas Valley by parents who immigrated to this country to seek a better life.

A California attorney and veteran of over 700 political campaigns, Catherine was a 10-year trainer for EMERGE – an organization working to elect more Democratic women to office. She has worked on behalf of political clients who include Congresswoman Barbara Lee, the California Democratic Party, California Teachers Association, California Nurses Association, children's organizations, Sierra Club, and scores of local elected women. She was Deputy Political Director of the Northern California Clinton-Gore campaign in 1992.

Catherine’s firm --The Lew Edwards Group—is a nationally recognized, award-winning company founded 23 years ago. LEG has enacted $38.5 Billion in California revenue measures at a 95% win rate to repair classrooms and improve libraries, parks, and public hospitals consistent with the firm’s philosophy to empower voters to protect their local quality of lives.

A graduate of UC Berkeley and the University of San Francisco School of Law, Catherine and her spouse live in Oakland, California. When she is not busy during an election cycle, she can be found at a barn with her American Quarter Horse Dakota.
