@MsPackyetti, 31, is a St. Louis native raised in a tradition of social justice. Brittany leads nationally on issues of educational equity, youth leadership development, service and equity in marginalized communities. Since the death of Michael Brown, Brittany has helped organize for change and worked on the planning teams of the Ferguson Protestor Newsletter, We The Protestors, and co-founded Campaign Zero, a comprehensive policy platform to end police violence in America. Brittany served as a stalwart community voice to the Ferguson Commission and President Obama’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing as an appointee to each, and continues to advocate for urgent systemic change at critical decision making tables and through national and international media. She currently runs Teach For America in St. Louis, serving 20,000 low-income children of color. She has been named one of TIME Magazine’s 12 New Faces of Black Leadership, been featured in The Root and The Ebony 100, and shares the 2015 Peter Jennings Award for Civic Leadership with Deray McKesson. She believes that the arc of the universe does indeed bend toward justice-but it is our job to bend it.
