In that position, she helped build interfaith groups and workers’ centers around the nation. Prior to Interfaith Workers Justice, she was national organizing director for Bread for the World and an instructor at the Midwest Academy, where she helped train hundreds of organizers and faith-based activists in thinking and working strategically.Kim is the author or co-author of several books, including: “Wage Theft in America: Why Millions of Working Americans Are Not Getting Paid – And What We Can Do About It,” the first book to document the wage theft crisis in the nation and propose practical solutions for addressing it; “Organizing for Social Change,” the best-selling organizing manual in the country; and “Lives Matter: A Handbook for Christian Organizing.” Kim’s most recent book, “The Worker Center Handbook,” will be published in 2016 by ILR Press, an imprint of Cornell University Press.
