Kirk W. Johnson
"Kirk Johnson is the founder of the List Project to Resettle Iraqi Allies, a non-profit organization which helps Iraqis who have become imperiled as a result of working with the U.S. The List Project has marshaled hundreds of attorneys from top firms who have given over 100,000 hours of pro bono legal counsel to help the Iraqis on Johnson’s list navigate the refugee resettlement bureaucracy... Prior to the List Project, Johnson served in Iraq with the U.S. Agency for International Development, first in Baghdad and then in Fallujah as the Agency’s first coordinator for reconstruction in the war-torn city.
"He has received fellowships from the American Academy in Berlin, Yaddo, and the Wurlitzer Foundation, and conducted research on political Islamism as a Fulbright Scholar in Egypt. Having started his studies of Arabic at the age of 16, Johnson has lived throughout the Middle East, and received his BA from the University of Chicago in 2002. He lives in Somerville, Massachusetts.
