Yasmin Vafa is co-founder and Executive Director of Rights4Girls, a national organization dedicated to ending gender-based violence against young women and girls in the U.S. As a human rights attorney and advocate, Yasmin’s work focuses on the intersections of race, gender, violence, and the law. She has successfully advocated for passage of several federal laws, testified before the U.S. Senate and international human rights bodies, and has been recognized for her legislative advocacy on behalf of trafficking survivors by Congress. Yasmin is co-author of the seminal report, The Sexual Abuse to Prison Pipeline: The Girls’ Story, which exposed the widespread criminalization of girls of color in the U.S. as a direct result of their victimization. The report has shaped the narrative around women and girls’ incarceration and inspired national efforts to reform the policies that criminalize survivors of violence.
