Christi Keith

Covid Rapid Response Director
Department:

Christi Keith is coming on-board as our Covid Rapid Response Director on a temporary basis to help us with the food assistance program.

Christi was interim Executive Director at NARAL as well as Executive Director of the Seattle Children’s Museum. She was proud to lead the Museum through a tumultuous period and focused on actions that can be felt by BIPOC. Staff went from one person of color to 45% and she led the Museum through a series of changes that resulted in new exhibits that focus on culturally appropriate content in multiple languages and curated a new culture of diversity and inclusivity. These actions led to a marked increase in attendance and membership and put the Museum on a path to sustainability.

She co-founded Whites4BlackLives, a forum for helping white people understand black oppression, institutional racism, and white privilege and to spur them into using their personal and institutional powers for change.
