We are excited to be a co-sponsor for the Phillips Brooks House Association (PBHA)’s 15th Annual Robert Coles “Call of Service” Lecture & Award honoring Mia Mingus on Friday, October 15, 2021 at 6:30 PM ET! This event brings a significant figure in public service to Harvard College annually to promote a commitment to service and draw attention to important social issues. The event is free, will take place via Zoom webinar, and will have an ASL interpreter. Please RSVP at pbha.info/Coles2021.

The award is named after Dr. Robert Coles, a former PBHA volunteer, civil rights advocate, child psychiatrist, Harvard professor, and Pulitzer Prize winning author. His book, The Call of Service, examines the idealistic spirit PBHA seeks to foster and is a fitting title for PBHA’s annual award and lecture.

Mia has been involved in transformative justice work for almost two decades. Mia helped create the Atlanta Transformative Justice Collaborative and was a founding and core member of the Bay Area Transformative Justice Collective. Over the past two decades, she has supported numerous groups, organizations, individuals, intimate networks, families and communities in addressing harm, violence and abuse using transformative justice.

Mia also helped create and forward the disability justice framework. Her writings on disability have been used around the world and are a regular part of college and university curricula. Mia has played a key role in connecting disability justice with other movements and communities and she has worked tirelessly to educate different communities about disability, ableism, access, disability justice and abled supremacy. Please join us in welcoming Mia and learning more about transformative & disability justice!
