about brittany

Heroine in the midst, Brittany T. Oliver is a race and gender justice activist with over several years of experience in politial advocacy, communications, community organizing and non-profit management based in Baltimore, MD. If you remember, Brittany  was the leading force who recieved national recognition for challenging white feminism during the Women's March on Washington. 

Brittany is the former police accountability coordinator at the ACLU of Maryland and former co-director (now advisory board member) of Hollaback! Baltimore, an anti-street harassment organization that sucessfully influened the “gender- biased policing” aspect of the U.S. Department of Justice’s report on Baltimore Police after the 2015 Uprising. 

Named as Bitch Media's "20 Black Women You Should Be Following Right Now," she's been a featured speaker for the ACLU, Amnesty International, American Association for University Women, Women of the World Festival, Global Women’s Institute at George Washington University, UB's Center on Applied Feminism and more.  

In July 2016, Brittany was a member of a historic delegation of activists in Palestine with a mission to build solidarity between Black and Palestinian liberation movements. Upon her return, Brittany tragically lost her uncle to gun violence in same neighboorhood she grew up in as a young girl in West Baltimore. A year later, Brittany transformed all of the pain she endured into power by founding Not Without Black Women, a social and political movement of everyday Black women that aims to uplift Black women’s voices through youth mentoring, collaborative partnerships, community organizing and advocacy.

Brittany holds a B.S. from Towson University. In her free time, she enjoys social dancing, practices ritual work and leads nature-based workshops as a naturalist.
