Intersecting identities within the field of sexual violence

Mia Mingus

Mia Mingus

Mia Mingus is a queer disabled woman of color, South Korean transracial adoptee, and organizer.  Through her work on disability, race, reproductive justice, gender, sexuality, and transracial adoption, she recognizes the urgency and barriers for oppressed communities to work together and build alliances for liberation.  Though her activism changes and evolves, her roots remain firmly planted in ending sexual violence.  Mia has been recognized for her work with the 2008 Creating Change Award by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.

As the Endnote speaker at the Campus Winter Institute, Mia delivered a challenging, theoretical speech on the intersectionality of identities in sexual violence and how collaboration can help end sexual violence.
