Karlie Kloss Will Appear at a Campaign Event For Joe Biden
Kloss has been an outspoken Democrat, despite marrying into the Kushner family.
People reports that the model will be appearing at a Biden campaign event on Thursday that focuses on young people and STEAM, an expanded approach to teaching science, technology, engineering, art and math. Kloss, who launched Kode With Klossy in 2015 to inspire women to get involved in tech, will also be joined by Girls Who Code founder Reshma Saujani,as well as Dr. Morine Cebert Gaitors, Nancy Lu, and Adrianna Williams.
Though much has been made of Kloss marrying into the Kushner and Trump family (she wed Joshua Kushner, Jared Kushner's brother, in 2018), she's indicated that her political views differ from those of her family.
"For those who know Karlie, this event makes a lot of sense," a source told People. "She cares deeply about the future of women in STEAM and has always supported the candidates who stand for the issues she’s passionate about."
During an appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen earlier this year, Kloss said, "I’m sure I’m not the only person in this country who does not necessarily agree with their family on politics."
She added, "I voted as a democrat in 2016 and I plan to do the same in 2020."
Kloss has also said "it's been hard" to be connected to the Trump White House, but added, "I choose to focus on the values that I share with my husband, and those are the same liberal values that I was raised with and that have guided me throughout my life."
