Malika Saada Saar, Human Rights Attorney & Advocate
Human rights attorney and advocate Malika Saada Saar has a long list of accomplishments, including leading the effort to shut down Craigslist sex ads that trafficked children, working to end the federal practice of shackling pregnant women in U.S. prisons and advocating for millions of dollars in federal funding for at-risk families. In addition to her title as Special Counsel on Human Rights at The Raben Group, Saada Saar is Director of the Human Rights Project for Girls (Rights4Girls), which focuses on gender-based violence against young women and girls in the U.S. and a member of the board of the Robert F.
