Klein Lieu, 2011 Fellow, is a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley with a degree in Cognitive Science. He grew up in Oakland, CA, where social justice activism was a passion as much as it was a necessity. At Berkeley, he organized with the Asian Pacific Islander community, participated in recruitment and retention activism for students of color, and served as a Senator with the Associated Students at UC Berkeley. Some of his innovative projects include: Hip Hop the Vote to engage young voters of color, UC Berkeley Consent to promote positive and healthy sexual activity, and Berkeley Safe Renting which helps residents determine if their homes are safe from Bay Area earthquakes. Post-graduation, he worked at Constant Contact promoting small businesses and nonprofits and was a project leader at Code for America’s Open Oakland brigade to incorporate technology and city government. He is driven by his conviction that technology can help solve institutional problems in society.
