Open Full Bio

After graduating from Harvard Law School in 2011, Kamilah worked for the health and human rights organization Just Detention International, where she advocated for the rights of prisoner rape survivors and helped local, state, and federal authorities implement the Prison Rape Elimination Act. Later, while working at the California Women’s Law Center, Kamilah coordinated government and grassroots efforts to pass the Justice for Victims Act (SB813), which successfully eliminated the statute of limitations for prosecuting sex crimes in California.

Kamilah shared her personal experience of surviving sexual assault and civil rights violations as a student at Harvard Law in the award-winning 2015 documentary The Hunting Ground and has been fighting rape culture in the public eye ever since. She now speaks regularly at campuses, organizations, and conferences throughout the United States about gender violence, rape culture, racism, and other social justice issues.
