TrustWomenPAC

Julie Burkhart worked side by side with Dr. George Tiller for eight years, first as Chair of the Wichita Choice Alliance and later as a spokesperson for his clinic and the CEO of ProKanDo, the PAC he founded in 2002. She carries on Dr. Tiller’s vision as the Founder and Executive Director of Trust Women PAC. In addition to other political and reproductive rights work, Ms. Burkhart was at ground zero during the infamous Summer of Mercy, as she worked at the Wichita Women’s Center that was heavily targeted by Operation Rescue, the Lambs of Christ and other anti-choice extremists. Ms. Burkhart was inspired by the feminist movement of the 1970’s and has dedicated her life’s work to the protection of reproductive freedom.
