Tix on Sale for 2019 Courageous Voice Breakfast with Brittany Packnett!

Since 2011, the Courageous Voice Breakfast has celebrated brave leaders who speak truth in the face of hostility. Now more than ever, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon believes it's crucial to harness our collective power and amplify our stories.

Cited by President Barack Obama as a leader whose “voice is going to be making a difference for years to come,” keynote speaker Brittany Packnett is an unapologetic educator, policy expert, writer and advocate for the empowerment of women and girls. She co-founded Campaign Zero, a platform to end police violence; served on the Ferguson Commission and Obama's Task Force on 21st Century Policing; and co-hosts the award-winning “Pod Save the People.”

Brittany recently launched Love + Power, a hub created to inspire and outfit everyday people to seismically shift society. She has graced the cover of Essence Magazine, been named one of TIME's 12 New Faces of Black Leadership and earned a fellowship at Harvard University's Institute of Politics. She is the author of the forthcoming book “We Are Like Those Who Dream.”
