Mia Mingus is a writer, educator and community organizer for disability justice and transformative justice. She is a queer physically disabled korean transracial and transnational adoptee raised in the Caribbean. 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. As her work for liberation evolves and deepens, her roots remain firmly planted in ending sexual violence.

She believes in prison abolition and urges all activists and organizers to critically and creatively think beyond the non-profit industrial complex.

Her writings can be found on her blog, Leaving Evidence.
