Kim joined Legal Aid as the Lewis F. Powell fellow in 2013. Kim originally focused on housing law, providing both individual legal representation and legal support to tenant organizations. In their role as Housing Team Coordinator, Kim witnessed the brutality with which racism and poverty continue to shape the contours of our neighborhoods and impact lives within them. They were also privileged to witness the strength of organized communities and the power of naming and attacking at the root the systems that harm our clients. In 2017, Kim transitioned to the Civil Rights and Racial Justice Program, where they now develop campaigns to combat the criminalization of the poor, people of color, and far too many Virginians. In 2020, Kim took on the Interim Legal Director role. They earned their B.A. from the College of William and Mary and their law degree from the University of Virginia, where they received the Herbert Kramer/Herbert Bangel Community Service Award.
