Brianna J. Jones
Brianna is an activist and organizer. Coalition-building and facilitating collaboration and solidarity between movements is her passion. She is inspired by the African proverb "If you want to go fast go alone, if you want to go far go together."
As Dragonfly's Operations Manager, she acts as the engine behind the organization's day-to-day operations, performing critical tasks like managing budgets, invoicing, and interfacing with clients.
She has also worked with dozens of local and national grassroots organizations on bridging the gap between climate change and social justice activists. Previously, she organized and led a coalition of organizations joining in protest of the 2016 Democratic National Convention. The committee was formed in order to take advantage of the convention's backdrop by collectively expressing grievances, using mass non-violent direct action to vocalize demands and bring issues specific to Philadelphia to the foreground.
Brianna is a proud Philadelphia native, raised in a home where issues around justice, equality and the pursuit of Black liberation were regular topics of conversation. She is currently pursuing a degree in Business Administration and is thrilled to devote her talents to Dragonfly's mission.
