Kai’s work as a research fellow at VERiS includes contributing as a researcher / interviewer to the evolv1 building story project; and co-instructor and co-developer of the Just Recovery(ies) workshop series to encourage students to develop core advocacy skills held over summer 2020, among other projects.
