As prominent activists in the movement against campus sexual assault, Wagatwe and Kamilah first connected in preparation for the 2016 Oscars performance with Lady Gaga. They decided to join forces in response to the need of social-justice centered methods to end sexual violence — on campuses and beyond.
Kamilah Willingham is a feminist writer, speaker, and activist dedicated to gender equality and civil rights. She was featured in the 2015 campus sexual assault documentary "The Hunting Ground" in which she told her story of surviving sexual assault while studying at Harvard Law School, and now speaks regularly about gender violence at campuses, organizations, and conferences across the United States.
Wagatwe Wanjuki is a writer, activist, and digital strategist best known for her work as a national campus anti- violence advocate. She is a founding co-organizer of Know Your IX’s ED ACT NOW campaign and now serves on their board. She received widespread media attention when she created the nationally-trending #SurvivorPrivilege hashtag on Twitter in response to a George Will Washington Post column.
