David Kim

Kim is a scholar of religion and public life at Connecticut College, with specializations in philosophy of religion, political theory, secularism, and the critical analysis of race and democracy. Kim is the co-convened of the Love-Driven Politics Collective, a cohort of artists, scholars, teachers, policy makers, entrepreneurs, and everyday people dedicated to transforming the political culture around values of love (compassion, generosity, forgiveness, and mercy). The Collective has partnered with a range of institutions including Slought, the University of Pennsylvania, Wesleyan, and the University of California Santa Barbara.

Kim currently serves on the Task Force to reconceive the mission for arts and civic engagement network Imagining America. In 2015 Kim became a senior fellow with Columbia University's Digital Storytelling Lab (DSL). Through his work with the DSL, Kim was part of a team that worked with the Public Broadcasting System to convert local PBS stations into social innovation hubs. The refashioned hubs would serve as spaces where independent producers and local patrons of PBS can collaborate to create media that would focus on local stories. Kim is also one of the co-principals for the DSL/Refinery29 documentary project "The Empathy Lab," a film that will feature empathy projects in health care, the prison system, and education. Kim has advised the Reverend William Barber II and the Poor People's Campaign.
