The mission of Justice for Black Girls is to expand global knowledge of how US-based systems of power respond to and perpetuate the abuse of Black girls in schools, in prisons and in protest.

Justice for Black Girls is a social justice education space that serves Black girls' needs for protection, safety, and belonging through a holistic culture of care coupled with Black feminist curriculum, grassroots collaborations, and academic partnerships.

Tameka served on the panel discussion during Justice for Black Girls conference in 2019. 


The Civil Rights Act of 1957 created the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. Since then, Congress has reauthorized or extended the legislation creating the Commission several times; the last reauthorization was in 1994 by the Civil Rights Commission Amendments Act of 1994.

Established as an independent, bipartisan, fact-finding federal agency, our mission is to inform the development of national civil rights policy and enhance enforcement of federal civil rights laws. We pursue this mission by studying alleged deprivations of voting rights and alleged discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, age, disability, or national origin, or in the administration of justice. We play a vital role in advancing civil rights through objective and comprehensive investigation, research, and analysis on issues of fundamental concern to the federal government and the public.

Tameka spoke on Voter Access for People with Disabilities in 2019.
