Sandra Kim is the Founder and Executive Director of Everyday Feminism, an educational platform for personal and social liberation. Launched in June 2012, Everyday Feminism has become known for having one of the most popular feminist digital media sites in the world, with a readership of millions of monthly visitors from over 150 countries.
In 2013 and 2014, Sandra also developed and leads the online courses for Everyday Self-Love and Relationships, which helps people become free of toxic messages from systemic oppression and to practice being loving to themselves and others. In Spring 2016, Sandra developed the model for Compassionate Activism, which helps people address everyday oppression with love and justice, and provides both in-person and online trainings to make this model accessible.
As a person with multiple marginalized identities, she is committed to intersectional feminism that is focused on personal and social liberation for everyone. Sandra brings an inside-out approach to feminism because she believes personal transformation and social transformation are interdependent. She’s also pioneering a values-driven self-governing organizational model where autonomy and collaboration are balanced in service of the mission.
She brings a wide range of approaches and skills to Everyday Feminism from her experience working with trauma survivors, healing and personal transformation, and social change. She has worked on the front lines in the fight against human trafficking and in the social innovation and capacity-building field.
Sandra is a trained life coach from the Coaches Training Institute (CTI). Sandra has also engaged in a variety of approaches to personal healing, development, and transformation to better understand what it takes to work through the past in order to be free in creating one’s future.
Prior to Everyday Feminism, she worked in the nonprofit capacity building field, social entrepreneurship field, and anti-human trafficking movement and volunteered to work with sexual assault survivors, intimate partner violence survivors, and youth involved with gang-related activities.
