by The Cut on Tuesdays

Brittany Packnett is an activist who rose to prominence after she became a leader of the protests in Ferguson back in 2014. Since then, she’s worked with leaders on the federal and state level on ending police brutality, and was appointed to President Obama’s task force on 21st century policing. Brittany talks with Stella Bugbee about how she gets it all done, including how she decompresses from dealing with heaviness of her work, travel hacks for the frequent flyer, and her philosophy of activism.
