Sandra Kim is the Founder and Training Director of Everyday Liberation and Founder and President of Everyday Feminism.
She recently founded Everyday Liberation, which is an educational platform supporting people in building explicitly anti-oppressive and liberating lives and communities – with a regular healing practice. Everyday Liberation offers online training programs for building organization explicitly structured to be anti-oppressive and pro-liberation and healing from oppression as both marginalized and privileged people.
She founded Everyday Feminism in 2012 and led it to become one of the largest independent feminist media sites in the world, with millions of people visiting the site every month. It supports people in applying intersectional feminism to their everyday lives in order to address the daily struggles of violence, discrimination, and marginalization.
Sandra shares the key lessons from her own cyclical Zen Buddhism-based healing and spiritual journey from internalized oppression to spiritual wholeness – as a person with multiple marginalized and privileged identities, as an organizational leader, and messy human being.
Sandra brings a unique inside-out approach to activism based on her belief in the interdependence of personal transformation and social transformation and that self-love and healing in community are necessary components of social justice.
She’s currently most excited about her Liberating Organizations work, which is a holistic values-driven self-governing organizational model designed to to create the world we want to live in right here, right now. This model elevates and resources the emotional labor needed for each of us to engage in the inner work and supports us in taking intentional actions, so we can all show up as our highest selves and nurture a healthy, loving, just community.
