Alice Kurima Newberry

Alice was born in Tokyo but is a native Seattleite and graduate from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington and therefore, loves the outdoors, orcas, and fresh produce. Alice started working in the nonprofit community since she was 12 years old and received the Gold Presidential Service Award from President Obama in 2009 for supporting low-income communities. In 2011, Alice visited Northern Ireland through Hands for a Bridge where she encountered the power of peace and justice. Alice strongly supports Okinawan rights and removal of U.S. foreign military bases. In 2015, Alice visited Okinawa and gained insight on the protests against U.S. bases. Alice’s experiences abroad and at home has had led her to become increasingly passionate about human rights, justice, and divesting from a war economy to a peace economy.

Alice is passionate about promoting gender equality, welcoming refugees, buying fair trade, and of course, demilitarizing America. She can be reached at
