Jee Kim

Program Officer, Civic Engagement and Government

Jee Kim is part of the Civic Engagement and Government team. His work has focused on increasing the participation of poor and marginalized groups through strengthening organizations and networks that build and mobilize the grassroots base for social change.

Prior to joining the foundation in 2012, Jee helped launch 18MillionRising.org, a national civic engagement project designed to build the political power of Asian Americans using social media and online organizing. This effort drew on his experience in digital community building and media production at Pseudo.com, AsianAvenue.com, BlackPlanet.com, and BET.com.

Previously, Jee served as a program officer, then program director, at the Surdna Foundation, where he managed grant-making portfolios in youth civic engagement, community organizing in New Orleans, and nonprofit infrastructure over his eight-year tenure. He also worked in New York as a racial justice and immigrant rights organizer and as a journalist, editing the 9/11 anthology Another World Is Possible and Future 500, an analysis of youth activism in the United States.

Jee received his master's degree from Oxford University and his undergraduate degree from Columbia University.
