Hello, I am Kian Alavi, a nonprofit leader from San Francisco, California.

In 2018, the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts recognized my work and added me to their YBCA 100, a list of global thought leaders who create change and move society forward. In 2019, I was given the Jefferson Award for my dedication to public service.

My journey in community service has included volunteerism, building community programs, organizing, public policy analysis and advocacy, fundraising, and nonprofit leadership.
