Kara directs U.S. PIRG’s efforts to push states to ban the pesticide Roundup unless and until independent research proves it’s safe. She was an advisor for the first Colorado court case to successfully hold a pesticide sprayer criminally accountable. Kara also works to protect communities from other toxic threats, including stopping the use of bee-killing pesticides and working with the media to alert people to toxic threats in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. Kara lives in Denver, where she enjoys hiking and buying used books.
