Tiheba Bain is the Director of Coalitions for The National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls. She works with various organizations around the country building out coalitions surrounding criminal justice reform. She also founded Women Against Mass Incarceration, a grassroots nonprofit organization, empowering the justice activism of women and girls.
Originally from Brooklyn, Tiheba became a Justice-in-Education Scholar in the summer of 2016. She describes her time in the Justice-in-Education program as challenging, as she was just beginning to work full time and was concurrently taking other classes, but she remains grateful for the support of her classmates and teachers.
She recently graduated with a dual Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Women and Criminal Justice from CUNY Baccalaureate Interdisciplinary and Unique Studies Program. She is a contributing published author to Race Education and Reintegration and she assisted with the legislation of Senate Bill 13 in Connecticut, which concerned the fair treatment of incarcerated persons.
Whether she’s advocating for policy changes or providing direct services to women and girls, Tiheba has dedicated her life to making change within the criminal injustice system.
The Criminal Justice Insider Podcast with Babz Rawls Ivy and Jeff Grant is broadcast live at 9 am ET on the first and third Friday of each month Sept. through June, from the WNHH 103.5 FM studios in New Haven.
