Yeleen Lee

Yeleen joins Astraea's Programs team with a background in organizing Asian immigrant communities in New York City for housing justice and language access. After completing her organizing fellowship at CAAAV, she joined their fundraising committee where she developed an interest in grassroots fundraising and radical resource mobilization. Prior to Astraea, Yeleen fundraised for GrubStreet, an arts non-profit based in Boston. As a queer North Carolinian at heart, Yeleen is excited to support Astraea's grantmaking for US-based LBT movements, especially those rooted in the South. In her spare time, she creates zines about gas stations and family, bakes and cooks things, and helps run @blmtranslate.kr on Instagram, a page for translating resources to advance Black liberation from English to Korean.
