Kiah Duggins (She/Her)


As an attorney at CRC, Kiah litigates against unconstitutional policing and money bail practices nationwide. Her 2021-2022 Law 4 Black Lives Fellowship encourages her to think critically about how to integrate abolitionist and movement lawyering practices into CRC’s daily work. Before coming to CRC, Kiah worked with the ACLU of Northern California and Neufeld, Scheck and Brustin LLP to challenge police misconduct and other harms of the criminal legal system. Kiah’s research and writing about Black liberation movements, such as “Abolition and International Human Rights: Taiwan’s Affirmation of Black American Abolitionist Movements,” has been published in the Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review and the Harvard BlackLetter Law Journal.

Kiah served as the president of the Harvard Legal Aid Bureau, a team leader in Harvard Defenders, and a Law and Social Change Fellow while earning her J.D. at Harvard Law School. Kiah graduated summa cum laude from Wichita State University and is a proud alumna of Wichita Public Schools.

She enjoys traveling to new countries, being an unapologetic Disney Adult, dancing, and asking about people’s daily magical moments.
