Misty Rojo (She/Her or They/Them)

Misty Rojo comes to prison abolition work after leaving home at 14 and ultimately leaving an abusive relationship at 23, only to end up serving a 10 year prison sentence. While incarcerated, Misty was mentored by true activists and survivors, learning the meaning of self-determination and resilience. Misty's work focuses on campaigns to build coalitions and bring about policy change using an intersectional prison abolition framework. Misty has sponsored two California state bills that directly impact people in CA women's prisons and their families, and continues to work in collaboration with CA RJ groups to expand reproductive rights and access to care in prisons.
