SOCIAL & ECONOMIC JUSTICE, ACTIVISM & ADVOCACY, AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT & WELLNESS: HOW TO DO WHAT YOU LOVE, MAKE A DIFFERENCE, AND MAKE A LIVING – WITH HELEN KIM, ’86, CONSULTANT/TRAINER, ROCKWOOD LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE, AND RAUL RAYMUNDO, ’86, CEO, THE RESURRECTION PROJECT

 How did a couple of immigrant kids from Korea and Mexico, respectively, become nationally-recognized leaders who’ve improved lives for thousands of people in community-based development and advocacy? They chose the right college, of course, Carleton! And these alumni are coming back to campus, January 30-31, 2017, with invaluable and inspirational experiences and insights. If being a change agent is your vision and passion, mark your calendar and join them!

 

Helen Kim '86 (New York City), consultant to social justice organizations and leadership trainer with the acclaimed Rockwood Leadership Institute, learned in organizing with garment workers in Oakland that people most impacted must lead lasting social change. Helen, also an attorney, works with leadership of national groups, including the National Domestic Workers Alliance and NAACP, as well as that of grassroots groups such as the Asian Pacific Environmental Network.  She helps to transform individual leadership, develop visionary strategies, and cultivate effective partnerships for social change.

 

Raul Raymundo '87

Raul Raymundo '87 (Chicago) is the founder and CEO of the remarkable The Resurrection Project, with investment to date of about $350 million to revitalize numerous Chicagoland vicinities with quality housing, safety, education, financial services, and wellness.  Through Raul’s stewardship, residents in The Resurrection Project’s extraordinary neighborhoods can live well and reach their potential.  He has mentored numerous leaders who have moved on to run other dynamic human service organizations.  Raul knows that when people meet the challenge to act on their faith and values, they will grow and relate to each other in vital ways, and their communities will thrive.

 

In empowering so many people, Helen and Raul owe a lot to Carleton tradition. Come learn more!
