Karenna Gore

Karenna Gore is an attorney, advocate, and the author of Lighting the Way: Nine Women Who Shaped Modern America. A former Board Member of Sanctuary for Families and a current member of its President’s Council, she has advocated to strengthen New York State’s laws against human trafficking and to ensure the protection of at-risk girls. A project of Union Theological Seminary, founded in 1836 by a group of ministers “deeply impressed by the claims of the world upon the church,” Union Forum applies that same spirit to the challenges of immigration, criminal justice, globalization, ecological crisis, poverty, and oppression.

“The way to right wrongs is to turn the light of truth upon them.”
— Ida B. Wells-Barnett
