Mimi Kim, a Ph.D. student who recently graduated from the School of Social Welfare, received an honorable mention at this year’s Thomas I. Yamashita Prize award ceremony.

The Prize, sponsored by the Institute for the Study of Social Issues’ Center for Research on Social Change at UC Berkeley, is awarded annually to an outstanding young social change activist/scholar in Californian whose work transforms the existing social landscape.

Kim, a long time advocate in domestic violence reduction and intervention, was nominated for her achievement in developing new models for addressing violence and creating a tool kit for people intervening to stop violence that is now being used nationally and internationally.
