Jamilia Land
Jamilia Land is a wife, mother, criminal and restorative justice activist, public speaker, and co-founder of A.S.A.P (Anti-Violence, Safety and Accountability Project) a 501(c)(3) organization centered on the mental health and well being of children and families impacted by police and community gun violence as well as incarceration. A Bay Area native, this outspoken, focus driven, and sometimes controversial activist devotes the majority of her time fighting for the rights of incarcerated individuals and families of victims of police brutality. Her life work has taken her into the juvenile detention centers, the state prisons, and various levels of social work specialized in adolescent development. Jamilia is a member of several legislative coalitions including ACA3 The California Abolition Act which will remove involuntary servitude from California's constitution; AB392 California Act To Saves Live, deadly use of force legislation; SB1437 Accomplice Liability For Felony Murder; SB1421 Peace Officers Release of Records. Jamilia is an executive board member for March On which is responsible for the historic 2018 election of women to the U.S.Congress. Jamilia currently serves as the policy board chair for The Women's Civic Improvement Club, as a policy board member for SETA/Head Start and serves as the Sacramento California chapter coordinator for CSSJ (Californians for Safety and Justice). She is often seen navigating the waters of direct community actions and legislative work. When her son was charged with a triple homicide he didn’t commit at the age of 23, she made it her mission to end the felony murder law in California and joined Senator Nancy Skinner in the fight for Senate Bill 1437. She is a dedicated community leader who advocates diligently through various platforms. Jamilia is the epitome of “boots on the ground” community organizing and extreme lobbying for the rights of currently and formerly incarcerated individuals. In 2019 Jamilia was appointed to the position of statewide outside organizer for the 10P Program founded by her husband Samual. The 10P Program is currently being taught inside CDCR facilities to include C.S.P Sacramento and Los Angeles County. Through protests, lobbying and demanding accountability, Jamilia has made it her life’s work to be the voice of the unheard, the voice of the forgotten, and the voice of the voiceless. By challenging policies and exposing discrimination, she stands firm in her convictions. She has made her mark by being diligent in her advocacy of mental health, criminal justice and restorative justice rights. She remains active in the community and continues to support local and national leaders and organizations. Jamilia is highly noted as a change agent for the community provoking actions needed to bring forth change.
