Capacity Building Manager
Asher Ki is a Capacity Building Manager with Californians for Justice, a Fresno state alumni with an associates and professional certificate in communications and a Bachelors in sociology. He’s also the Co-founder/ executive director of Cultured Seeds Inc., a community benefit organization invested in combating cultural stigma, discrimination and overall lack of awareness surrounding mental health, trauma and racial disparities amongst marginalized low-income LGBTQ+ communities of color. Asher has a passion for making a difference in his community by advocating for racial, social and educational justice, as well as building the capacity of individuals, and organizations. Ultimately, he’s always striving to create and implement strategies that truly mold and develop individuals in a way that feels authentic and empowering. A key component to who he is, is rooted in his ability to invariably think creatively about the impact, solution and overall process for advancing racial equity and dismantling systems that were designed for BIPOC individuals to fail.
- “ There is a beguiling intricacy associated with the work. We must be both competitive and unlatched in our thinking, planning and execution in order to create sustainable systems rooted in anti racist transformative bounds.” – Asher K
