Brittany N. Packnett
The child of educators and a St. Louis native, Brittany taught 3rd Grade in Southeast Washington, DC in the 2007 corps. Following her time in the classroom, Brittany worked in federal education policy and advocacy for low-income students around the nation as a Capitol Hill staffer and a director of government affairs for Teach For America. She has been working to amplify the voice of young people in Ferguson through national and international press and open letters, facilitating the #FergusonFireside Conference Calls with America, engaging students in critically conscious leadership development, and helping lead Teach For Ferguson during unexpected school closings. Brittany believes every child possesses inherent value and is committed to empowering young people to lead the modern movement toward justice by building strong learners and leaders in classrooms and beyond. In 2014, Brittany was appointed to the Ferguson Commission and to President Obama’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing. She was named by TIME Magazine as one of 12 New Faces of Black Leadership in January 2015. She is an alum of Washington University in St. Louis and American University in Washington. She is @MsPackyetti on Twitter.
