Rabia Qutab is the Development and Partnerships Associate at Impact Justice. In this role, she helps raise resources and support new partnerships to fuel Impact Justice’s mission.

Rabia brings years of experience in social justice advocacy with justice system-impacted communities to her role. Rabia’s own journey from incarceration into reentry began in late 2020. As a formerly incarcerated woman of color, Rabia is deeply committed to prison reform. Her work as an advocate and a freedom worker seeks to include folks with similar lived experiences, exposing the dangers of marginalization by empowering them with support, resources, enhanced wellness, self-reliance, and financial sustainability.

She is an alumna of Impact Justice’s own California Justice Leaders Program, during which she spent a year at Amity Foundation providing reentry support to youth and young adults who have faced similar life experiences to her own. Rabia has also participated in a number of competitive fellowship programs, including The Justice Fellows Policy Program with the Education Trust, YPOC Fellows with National Institute of Criminal Justice Reform, JLUSA Leading with Conviction, LARRP Leadership Academy, and P4E with Ladies of Hope Ministries.

Currently, she is a fellow with 2023 John W. Mack Movement Building with Weingart Foundation. She has been an invited speaker at conferences and convenings, like the National Conference on Higher Education in Prison (NCHEP), National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA), All of Us or None conference, and the Jobs for the Future (JFF) Horizons conference.

Rabia graduated from the University of North Texas with honors as a pre-med student with a major in Biology minor in Chemistry. She joined Impact Justice’s staff in 2022 as a member of the finance team, and has held professional roles focused on finance and accounting, strategic partnerships, case management, and organizing.

Rabia takes pride in her work to increase support for Impact Justice’s programs and serve as an agent of systemic change.
