About Mariame Kaba

Mariame Kaba, aka @prisonculture on her popular Twitter feed, isn’t afraid to stand up for her rights and the rights of all of those who are oppressed and discriminated against in American society. As founder of Project NIA, she works to keep #NoYouthInPrison through advocacy, education, and research; and as cofounder of Chicago Taskforce, she works to stop violence against girls and young women. As she so bluntly puts it, she’s “Feminist as F#ck.” Her life is devoted to service, and she wholeheartedly believes that, if we imagine it, we can create the change we need in this country and have equal rights for all.
