Kate Woodsome


Kate Woodsome is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and documentary filmmaker who weaves the connection between the health of our minds and the health of our body politic.

While at The Washington Post, she won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service with colleagues covering the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, pioneered a mental health column, and managed a short documentary unit. 

Now independent, she has founded the group Invisible Threads to explore the ties between mental health and democracy in a way that nourishes individual and collective wellbeing. The journalistic, educational, and resilience-building organization pursues this mission through writing, film, speaking, and teaching.

Invisible Threads deepens work that Woodsome has done for two decades— which includes reporting on an authoritarian regime in post-genocide Cambodia, the decline of democracy in Hong Kong, the 2021 insurrection, and other issues.
