Kirk has been working on issues related to families and communities for 20 years as a legal services lawyer, nonprofit executive, community advocate and as a national keynote speaker. For four years, he served as the national facilitator for the National Fatherhood Leaders Group. In addition to that role, Kirk has worked closely with White House staff and other national leaders on issues related to fathers and families. He is considered a national expert in the areas of public policy related to responsible fatherhood, family support practice, community building and development, parent-engagement and leadership and anti-poverty strategies.
Kirk is presently co-leading Father, Families and Healthy Communities, a citywide initiative in Chicago that seeks to strengthen the engagement of low-income non-custodial African-American fathers with their children, families and communities.
