She believes and works towards transformative justice responses to child sexual abuse.

Mia is currently a 2016 Just Beginning Collaborative fellow funded for The Living Bridges Project which is an anonymous story-collecting project documenting collective responses to child sexual abuse. Their goal is to create a library of examples of responses to child sexual abuse, learn how to better respond to such situations in transformative ways.
Mia is a core-member of the Bay Area Transformative Justice Collective. They are a local group working to support transformative justice responses to child sexual abuse.
