Who Is Thenjiwe Tameika Mcharris? Thenjiwe Tameika McHarris is a Co-Founder for the Blackbird with two videos in the C-SPAN Video Library; the first appearance was a 2013 Speech as a Senior Campaigner for the Amnesty International.
Thenjiwe has spent her entire political and professional career challenging the injustices that imprison people and their communities in a life of poverty and/or one behind bars. That commitment has led her to campaign on human rights issues in the United States and around the world. She honed her human rights campaign development and organizing skills while working for international organizations and has played key roles in helping lead high profile mobilizations around the country.
Thenjiwe began her political career calling for an end to policies and practices that contributed to acts of torture committed by law enforcement. She went on to help organize efforts that addressed the human rights violations that occurred during and after Hurricanes Katrina & Rita. She worked on a number of campaigns including those that addressed the illicit and illegal trafficking of small arms around the world, solitary confinement, capital punishment, maternal deaths, excessive use of force by law enforcement, and poverty. She has worked for a number of human rights organizations including Amnesty International. Most recently, Thenjiwe worked for the U.S. Human Rights Network where she helped coordinate efforts to hold the U.S.G accountable for its human rights violations when the United States was up for review by specific UN Mechanisms.
Thenjiwe currently works with a team called Blackbird, which is focused on movement building in this current historical moment. Blackbird provides communications, organizing as well as policy/advocacy support to a growing field committed to ending racism in the United States. She is also currently working with a number of social justice organizations and movements in the US and is helping to establish a collective for organizers engaged in movement building work around the world.
