Brittany supports grassroots organizing for workers’ human rights. Brittany previously worked in NESRI’s Housing Program with community groups organizing for the equitable fulfillment of the human right to housing. Prior to joining NESRI, Brittany took every opportunity to work in support of grassroots campaigns led by low-wage workers, including projects with the Domestic Workers United, Make the Road New York, and Restaurant Opportunities Center United, and internships with the Communication Workers for America District 1 and the Community Economic Development Clinic at Fordham Law. She also analyzed transnational labor migration policies and their impact on worker rights as a legal research assistant for Jennifer Gordon, founder of the Workplace Project and author of Suburban Sweatshops: The Fight for Immigrant Rights, interned with NY Lawyers for the Public Interest and Legal Services for the Elderly in Queens, volunteered with NY Civil Rights Coalition, and organized workshops on "lawyering in support of community organizing" in Washington, DC, and New York with lawyer-organizer teams. Earlier on, her commitment to progressive social change was solidified through years of student organizing and community-building initiatives. Brittany received her B.A. from Washington University in St. Louis and is a graduate of Fordham Law School.
