Born and raised in San Francisco, Natalie Gee 朱凱勤 has over twenty years of experience in community organizing, electoral campaigns, and policy development. She grew up in the Portola and later attended Lowell High School and San Francisco State University. As a kid, her mother would take her to community meetings and rely on her to help interpret to Cantonese so that her family could stay updated on what was happening in their neighborhood. As soon as she turned 18, she registered to vote as a Democrat and has been involved with Democratic issues since.
Previously, Natalie spent more than a decade as a community organizer in Chinatown where she co-founded Youth MOJO, a youth program for high school youth to learn and take action on the issues affecting them in the city. Currently, Natalie is the Chief of Staff at the San Francisco Board of Supervisors for District 10, which covers neighborhoods with a high population of working-class families. She has worked on legislation such as language access, community policing, COVID-19 hazard pay for grocery workers, banning JUUL/e-cigarettes, women’s health issues, and creating the first Pacific Islander Cultural District. She is passionate about making sure the voices of the most vulnerable communities and working-class families are heard and represented.
Natalie is an active member delegate of the International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers (IFPTE) Local 21 and a member of the Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance (APALA). She is also an appointed delegate to the California Democratic Party representing Assembly District 19. She has previously served on the board of the San Francisco Young Democrats (SFYD). Currently, she resides in the Sunset with her husband.
