President’s Corner: Kerry Gough
By Children Rising
Upon his retirement on April 15, 2008, Kerry joined forces with Global Strategies for HIV Prevention, and less than a month later, went to Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo for a two-week exploration into how victims of sexual assault could be assisted legally. This led to a six-week stint in Goma the following year and eventually to the establishment of some legal clinics staffed by third-year Congolese law students supervised by Congolese attorneys.
Kerry received his Juris Doctorate degree from Boalt Hall School of Law, U.C. Berkeley, in 1966. His community service background includes a stint on the Global Strategies Board of Directors; President of the Legal Aid Society of Alameda County; President of Allied Fellowship Service, a half-way house for ex-offenders; and advisory board member for Project Sentinel, a nonprofit that investigates, mediates and litigates housing discrimination cases.
Welcome aboard, Kerry Gough!
