Mijo Lee

Mijo Lee is the Executive Director at Social Justice Fund Northwest in Seattle. In her previous role as Program Director at SJF, she helped develop and establish an innovative Giving Project model of grassroots funding and donor organizing. Mijo graduated from NYU law school and practiced as an appellate defender, but her heart has always been in community organizing. She loves helping people realize their power as fundraisers, donors, and activists. As an activist and organizer, Mijo has worked in a variety of movements including domestic violence advocacy, fair trade, police accountability and immigrant rights, but the greatest test of her organizing skills to date has been helping coach her son’s robotics team to semi finals.
