2018 Women’s March on Washington

Brittany T. Oliver is an advocate, organizer, politico and comms professional living in Baltimore, MD. She is the founder of Not Without Black Women and was recently voted to be the new 2019-2020 president of the Public Purpose Journal at the School of Public Affairs at AU.

Named as “20 Black Women You Should Be Following Right Now” by Bitch Media, Brittany previously worked at the ACLU of Maryland in communications and co-directed Hollaback! Baltimore, an anti-street harassment organization that was the driving force behind the gender-biased policing data included in the U.S. Department of Justice’s report on Baltimore Police released shortly after the uprising in 2015.

One of Brittany’s most memorable accomplishments in her career was her grassroots organizing and campaigning skills that helped to spearhead the passage of the anti-harassment and discrimination bill (HB 1342/SB 1138) during the 2018 Maryland General Assembly session, which earned her a spot on the Baltimore Sun’s “Top 25 Women to Watch” list for her work. Brittany has also worked in Washington D.C. to advocate for federal policies such as the Women’s Health Protection Act, Public Service Freedom to Negotiate Act, Blueprint for Sexual and Reproductive Health, Rights, and Justice more.

Brittany has facilitated many trainings and workshops at institutions such as John’s Hopkins University, the Global Women’s Institute, Towson University’s Center for Student Diversity, the Public Relations Society of America Conference, Enoch Pratt Library, UMBC Women’s Center, Institute for Policy Studies, National Conference for Student Women Leaders, University of Baltimore and more.

Dismantling patriarchy can’t be done by one woman, but if it were possible, that woman would be Brittany Oliver.
— Tamera Golan, Global Women's Institute
I had the distinct opportunity to serve on a national leadership team with Brittany for 3 years. Brittany always bought innovative dialogue, strategic suggestions, and her expertise in communication to help lift victim/survivors’ voices to the national project. I’m excited to see the manifestation of Brittany’s talents and unwavering passions help shape social & political transformation.
— Adrienne N. Spires, California Coalition Against Sexual Assault
Brittany Oliver has the kind reputation and pull that when matters of national importance occur, hers is one of the first opinions and perspectives I seek. She is candid, steadfast and well-informed. A critical voice of our generation, most certainly.
