Pearl Kim

Pearl Kim is running for Congress as a voice for all who want to achieve the American Dream. As Chief of the Human Trafficking Unit in the Special Victims and Domestic Violence Division for the Delaware County District Attorney’s Office, Pearl sought justice for those who were victimized through no fault of their own. As a Prosecutor, Pearl handled Protection from Abuse matters, child physical and sexual abuse, domestic violence, rape, human trafficking, and internet crimes against children cases. She was appointed by PA Attorney General Josh Shapiro as a Senior Deputy Attorney General, where she focused on keeping students safe on campus. She was also the first prosecutor in the Commonwealth to secure a conviction under Pennsylvania’s new landmark human trafficking law, which she helped shape. Both Democratic and Republican Governors have appointed Pearl Kim to the Governor’s Advisory Commission on Asian American Affairs.
