Domale Dube Keys, Ph.D., is a lecturer for UCLA Labor and Workplace Studies. She is a transborder Black feminist scholar whose work aims to reshape discourse around issues of organizing, race, gender, and sexuality to support movement-building in the U.S. and around the globe for economic and environmental justice. Her research has documented the experiences of Black women and immigrants who are involved in transnational nonviolent organizing. Her recent work pushes for a critical theory of violence based on her work with Black indigenous communities and research on sexual violence organizing in higher education. Her current book manuscript was awarded the National Women’s Studies Association’s First Book Prize. She also earned a fellowship from the International Center for Nonviolent Conflict in 2016. Keys previously taught courses at the University of Arizona and Augustana College and has worked for over a decade with youth on issues of reproductive health and sexual violence.
