Jackson, Nala, MAJ
Director of Social Media and Networks


Nala Jackson is the Director of Social Media and Networks for MSU’s Research Consortium on Gender-Based Violence. Her interest in RCGV emerged when she saw the need for not only assisting survivors of gender-based violence but to create media visibility for the advocates who help. Her experience with this comes from years of being a Social Media Analyst for public health organizations and various radio stations in Detroit. She is also a recent graduate of Michigan State University, earning her Master of Arts in Journalism. Nala is passionate about finding new ways to bring stories to life through interesting visual representations and the latest trends. And as a new member of RCGV, she is excited to bring her marketing and technical skills to the team.

About RCGV

MSU’s Research Consortium on Gender-Based Violence faculty and staff are dedicated to research and outreach initiatives related to ending and preventing gender-based violence and improving the community response to survivors. RCGV faculty are committed to mentoring the next generation of gender-based violence researchers by providing substantial educational and employment opportunities to undergraduate and graduate students.

Gender-based violence (GBV) is a significant and widespread social problem internationally, devastating adults, children, families and societies across the globe. It includes any form of harm that is both a consequence and cause of gender power inequities. It can be physical, psychological, sexual, economic, or sociocultural, and includes but is not limited to sexual abuse, rape, intimate partner abuse, incest, sexual harassment, stalking, femicide, trafficking, gendered hate crimes and dowry abuse. Gender-based violence intersects with race-based, class-based or religiously oppressive forms of abuse, and cross-cuts many other social problems (e.g., poverty, substance abuse, mental and physical health, crime).
