Lisa Kim Continues Collaboration with Mentor After Fellowship
We are pleased to announce that BKF Fellow Lisa Kim will continue her work at Futures Without Violence upon completing her fellowship with the President and Founder of the organization, Esta Soler. As a Legal Program Specialist and Program Coordinator, Lisa will concentrate on a new project called, “Low Wage, High Risk.” The project seeks to enhance both the safety and economic security for low-wage workers, who are at increased risk for gender-based violence and exploitation in the workplace. Through a unique collaboration between private sector partners, workers’ rights associations, and anti-violence advocates, the project will develop and promote promising practices that prevent and respond to domestic and sexual violence and stalking. For more than 30 years, Futures Without Violence has developed programs, trainings, campaigns, and policies to end gender-based violence, including the landmark Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) in 1994, the first U.S. federal response to family violence.
