Santa Clarita's Unsung Hero - Kim Goldman

 

Kim Goldman has left a tremendous mark on the Santa Clarita Valley. Since her brother’s homicide in 1994, she has traveled the country sharing her pain and the healing process her family has endured leading up to and after the trials against O.J. Simpson. Goldman and her father, Fred Goldman, instituted The Ron Goldman Foundation for Justice which serves to offer assistance and resources to those whom are the victim of a crime. She also serves on the board of The National Center for Victims of Crime, speaking on victim’s issues as well as speaking out about judicial reform and the role of the media.

“I’m actively working on, right now, to get a victim’s rights amendment to the Federal Constitution which is the first time in over 200 years that the Constitution will be changed,” said Goldman. “We’re working hard to get an amendment to protect victim’s rights which currently there is nothing on a Federal level.”

Goldman is an active member of her community and gets back to her roots of working with youth. Initially founded in January 2000, Goldman sought out and joined the Santa Clarita Valley Youth Project late in 2005. The organization was created in response to a city-sponsored needs assessment of local youth. The charity provides free mentoring and support groups to teenagers who are dealing with issues around drugs, alcohol, mourning, anger, depression, suicide and many other problems that they may face.

KHTS Makes Changes

We had to make a tough decision yesterday. We let two of our very talented reporters leave our team. It was an economic decision.

She knows our Valley and serves on many of our Valley’s finest non-profit boards. Mark Archuletta is a talented writer who is also passionate about his work. Sometimes owning a business can be challenging because we need to make some tough decisions.
