About this Event
Brittany K. Barnett is an attorney and entrepreneur focusing on social impact investing. A fierce advocate for her clients, Barnett was part of the legal team that successfully lobbied for clemency for Alice Marie Johnson.
She is co-founder of the Buried Alive Project, a national organization that works to dismantle life without parole sentences handed down under federal drug laws through transformative litigation, legislation, and humanization.
While working several years as a corporate attorney, Brittany was committed to pro bono representation of clients in federal prison. Her dedication to this life changing work paid off tremendously – resulting in executive clemency for numerous clients from President Obama and President Trump, as well as freedom for several additional clients through the federal court system.
