MIA MINGUS, Community Organizer and Educator
This workshop will offer a basic introduction to and overview of the core concepts of transformative justice. It will be a space for participants to learn about what TJ is and how to begin thinking about community-based responses to violence.  Mia Mingus is a writer, public speaker, community educator and organizer working for disability justice and transformative justice responses to child
sexual abuse. She is a queer physically disabled transracial and transnational adoptee, born in Korea, raised in the Caribbean, nurtured in the U.S. South, and now living in Northern California. She works for community, interdependency and home for all of us, not just some of us, and longs for a world where disabled children can live free of violence, with dignity and love.

CO-SPONSORED BY: Philosophy, African American and African Studies, Lyman Briggs College, Decolonial Feminist Collective, American Indian and Indigenous Studies, Chicano/Latino Studies, and The Center for Gender in Global Context, and the Timnick Chair in the Humanities.
