Dr. Brittany Lewis

Social Justice Changemaker

Dr. Brittany Lewis is a well-respected community engaged qualitative scholar, thought leader, author, and professor known for bringing those most often locked out of local decision-making processes to the action research table. Brittany draws on over 15 years of engaged research and expertise in social justice issues such as group and gun violence and sex trafficking. As these typically begin with lack of access to safe, affordable, and dignified housing, Brittany will discuss the systemic injustices perpetuated by our social ecosystem. She explores the urgent need for policy and practice change efforts to address housing inequality and advocate for the rights of vulnerable communities.
