Christopher (Chris) Kusumonegoro (he/they) is an eclectic adventurist. Hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area, his desire to explore was nurtured by exquisite West Coast vistas and local nature celebrities like Karl the Fog. His adventures led him to Atlanta as an undergraduate at Emory University where he double majored in business and sociology. His senior thesis, which received highest honors, explored the identity formation and experiences of gay, Asian-American, Christian men and reflected his interests at the intersection of sexuality, religion, and race.
At Emory, Chris served as the chief executive officer of the Emory Impact Investing Group, an undergraduate micro-financing organization, and a co-founder of Emory In Via and Queerly Beloved which promoted LGBTQ+ justice in faith spaces. These diverse experiences cultivated his appreciation of interdisciplinary thought, conviction for justice, and love of creativity.
After graduating, Chris continued their journey at Sojourners, where they practiced faith-based mobilizing on progressive topics and continued to pursue their intellectual interests as a queer person of color.
