Brianna Baker

is Changing How Black Girls Access Justice

Founder, Justice for Black Girls
Arlington, VA/Washington, DC

While earning degrees at Spelman College and Columbia University, Brianna Baker combined her passions for education and activism and developed a teaching approach that inspired her to found Justice for Black Girls (JBG). JBG is a non-profit that cultivates student activism and policy work, develops curriculum that combats the misrepresentation of Black girlhood, and provides monetary relief for Black girl activists. Her JBG Ambassadors, some as young as 13, have even been invited to the White House to speak on mental health and girl leaders.

  • "Work centering Black girlhood cannot just be about responding to Black girl trauma and death... It must center Black girl joy, healing and liberation."
