Mikka McCracken is the director of planning and engagement for ELCA World Hunger and will serve as this year’s ELCA Assembly Representative for the New England Synod. A South Korean adoptee, she grew up in northern Minnesota and is a lifelong Lutheran. Mikka has also worked with the ELCA Justice for Women program and ELCA Washington Office on gender justice advocacy and ELCA Global Mission on “glocal” learning events. She graduated in political science and peace studies at Gustavus Adolphus College and has completed her certificate in nonprofit management from the University of Illinois at Chicago School of Continuing Studies. She believes it is possible to end poverty and hunger and that the church has an important role to play in that endeavor.
We had a wonderful conversation with Mikka and we are excited to get to know her more at this year’s assembly.
