Kathy Khang is a clear and compelling communicator.  Her writing and unique voice help stir up discussion around various issues in society.  And her speaking is genuine—she speaks from her life, and brings her whole self.  I’ve deeply appreciated her insight, her cultural critique, and her provocative questions. Kathy is a fantastic speaker who engages audiences with her insight, and moves them with her words. — Nikki Toyama-Szeto, executive director of Christians for Social Action, author of Partnering with the Global Church and co-author and co-editor of More Than Serving Tea.

Kathy is a passionate and prophetic speaker, often challenging us — both with truth-telling and vulnerable story-telling — to keep our eyes and hearts wide open to the things we neatly want to tuck away. Listen, and get ready to see things in a new way. — James Choung, author of True Story and Real Life

Kathy Khang delivers her message with a beautiful combination of wit and wisdom. Her message is timely and she provokes us to deeper thought and more meaningful dialogue, while modeling what it looks like to tackle tough topics with grace. Her writing inspires and coaxes the best of us out of us, and her speaking captivates an audience and draws us in. Those who hear and read and enter into conversation with Kathy are the benefactors of her insight and knowledge, and that is a very good thing, indeed. — Deidra Riggs, author of Every Little Thing and One
