Brittany Cesarini, Advocacy and Communications Manager

Tackling systemic injustices requires empathy, resilience, innovation, and collaboration. The dynamic GHC community centers on these values, and I am grateful for the opportunity to be part of it.

Prior to joining GHC in 2016, Brittany led communications and legislation initiatives for New York City Council Member Fernando Cabrera, who chaired the Juvenile Justice Committee and worked on key health and immigration efforts in District 14 in The Bronx, the poorest Congressional district in the U.S. Brittany began her post-undergraduate career piloting a community-based health education program in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, funded by the Henry Richardson Labouisse ’26 Prize. She holds a bachelor’s degree in public policy, gender & sexuality studies, and African studies from Princeton University (with a semester at the University of Cape Town), is fluent in Swahili, and enjoys penning personal reflections on current affairs. Brittany is passionate about the power of communications and advocacy to mobilize people to stretch their imaginations and take actions towards building a more equitable world.

Fun Fact: Brittany is a secret adrenaline junky. That usually takes the form of closely following hot takes on the news cycle, but she has also bungee jumped off the highest commercial bungee jump location in the world, Bloukrans Bridge in Western Cape, South Africa.
