As a fellow at the Roosevelt Institute, Jee Kim examines the power of individual worldviews and social paradigms.
Prior to joining Roosevelt, Kim was the founding executive director of the Narrative Initiative, a think-and-do tank committed to making equity and justice common sense. He served the same role at 18MillionRising.org, a platform built to increase the political power of Asian Americans using social media and technology.
His stints in philanthropy include the Ford Foundation, where Jee was part of the Civic Engagement and Government team, focusing on political participation of under-represented constituencies and mobilization of a grassroots base for social change. Jee also served as a program director at the Surdna Foundation, where he managed grant-making portfolios in youth civic engagement, post-Katrina New Orleans, and nonprofit infrastructure.
