The ADL Mountain States Region wishes to extend sincere thanks to Kelsey Grim who is completing her term as its 2020-21 regional intern.
Born and raised in Denver, CO, Kelsey is a graduate student in the Master of Social Sciences program at the University of Colorado – Denver, where she is on the Social Justice track and pursuing a Women and Gender Studies Certificate. Her research focuses on power dynamics and the prescription of value within hierarchical systems, episodes and patterns of mass violence and genocide, and extremism and radicalization. She expects to graduate in December 2021.
“I feel so privileged to have had the opportunity to work with ADL over the past several months, and I am constantly inspired and humbled by the work that my colleagues do. I want to specifically thank the amazing people in the Denver office with whom I got to spend countless Zoom hours. Some highlights of my internship have included being involved with the Governors Holocaust Remembrance Program and getting the chance to hear the incredible story of Survivor Judith Altmann, having the pleasure of reading and judging the A Tribute to Moral Courage student essay contest, and taking part in multiple research efforts with ADL’s national Center on Extremism. My time with ADL has reinforced my passion for social justice and human rights, and I am looking forward to continuing to follow the League’s work and hopefully cross paths again in the future.”
“Kelsey’s work has been of extremely high value to ADL,” said Sue Parker Gerson, ADL Mountain States Senior Associate Regional Director. “We will miss Kelsey and wish her luck in all of her future endeavors.”
