Community Activist

Kim Drew Wright

Many people have their own story of a hero’s journey. For Kim Drew Wright, author and activist, her’s started when she was compelled by her community to get involved after the 2016 election. As founder of a grassroots organization, Liberal Women of Chesterfield County & Beyond (LWCC), Wright focused on connecting and educating citizens to be active in their own governement. The LWCC organization has garnered national and international attention for Chesterfield County since its launch. Wright works tirelessly to support the LWCC, all while contending with her own personal and family challenges; her breast cancer diagnosis and her daughter’s diagnosis with Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome (PANS). As Wright would say, “we have to do what we have to do”– a mantra that helps keep her going through tough times.
