creator, love + power

Love and power together are an unstoppable force for justice.  Motivated by the promise of these dual concepts, Brittany created Love + Power to inspire and outfit people for action.  Love + Power members galvanize others with their reflections on justice work, and leverage the power of fashion to speak their beliefs without saying a word at all.
