Mirabai Collins

Mirabai Collins is an Educational Technician for IAE in Portland, Oregon, delivering ecology programs to women adults in custody at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility, and helping to coordinate endangered butterfly larvae production. From Northern California, she holds an undergraduate degree in English with an emphasis in linguistics, and is concerned with African American poetics as they relate to expressive constructs within oppressive and undermining frameworks. Attendant to this work is the exploration of un/natural environments and their creative possibilities, which brings her back to the land, and as a member of the Black Food Sovereignty Coalition, the fight for food-systems justice.
