Mims is an artist, abolitionist, and facilitator from Jacksonville, Florida based in Los Angeles, CA. She has trained and performed in many different dance forms for several years. Her work, which spans across the disciplines of fashion, dance, advocacy, facilitation, curation, and direction, is rooted in self and cultural explorations, healing, and shifting culture alongside policy to create sustainable change. She experiences the body as a site of liberation and uses that information as a guide for organizing, facilitation, and all of the art she creates. Mims is a graduate of the University of Southern California where she studied Dance and NGO’s and Social Change. She currently works for Californians United for a Responsible Budget and is a Toulmin Fellow.
